Glenn and JP were among the first gay South Africans to get legally married. The ‘seven year itch’ has turned things sour. As respectable, upstanding members of the community, they’ve resolved that the best course of action is to divorce amicably. But that’s before the lawyer is ‘delayed’ and they are left unsupervised in his waiting room.
Savagely funny, relevant and moving for anyone who has loved and lost. Civil Parting is the unravelling of a relationship, never straightforward, often hilarious, sometimes not, no matter who you are.
