Inspired by real-life events, "Australian Marriage Act" tells the story of sixteen-year-old Victoria seeking permission to marry her 22-year-old fiance Rod.
When she is refused permission from both her parents and the courts, she takes her case to the Supreme Court.
In the course of the hearing, the couple discover they are pregnant and - to secure their future - they buy into several media contracts.
This is a frank, humorous and moving account of a young couple's fight for love.
Exploring sexual relationships and the age of consent, personal identity, discrimination, privacy and the law, "Australian Marriage Act" is bold, original and raw theatre. (1 Act, 1 male, 2 female).
