We are giving you the opportunity to win one of three double passes to see winner of The Block 2013 All Stars Amity Dry’s new musical ‘Mother, Wife and the Complicated Life’. NSW ONLY (Sydney show)

After taking out the #1 spot in The Block All Stars with husband Phil Rankin, selling their Bondi renovation for a cool $1.67 million, it’s been Dry’s very honest, warm and likeable personality that has again captured the attention of Australia, resulting in the announcement of national dates for her self-penned musical. Mother, Wife and the Complicated Life is a contemporary musical comedy about marriage, motherhood and the pressure on women to ‘do it all.’ Dry wrote and composed the show in 2009, after noting there was a lack of musical theatre about motherhood. Audiences agreed, giving the show a sell out season in its Fringe Festival debut.  

Since then Mother, Wife and the Complicated Life has enjoyed four successful seasons in South Australia, garnering rave reviews and a nomination for Best Professional Musical in the Adelaide Theatre Guide Awards. The show touches on many subjects not typically seen in musical theatre, from unwanted pregnancy and postnatal depression, to the pressure women feel trying to balance work, kids and relationships, without losing themselves in the process. With women more than ever publically discussing these struggles through the worldwide popularity of female focused websites and blogs, this musical takes that discussion and puts it on the stage in a way that has not been seen before.

For more information and tickets, visit www.MotherWifeMusical.com or www.facebook.com/PhilAndAmity.

Show event: May 23- June 1 (Sydney) at 7pm: Everest Theatre, Seymour Centre, Darlington.

3 x double passes to one Sydney show. Each double pass valued at $119.80.

It's hard because there is only 24hrs in the day, and that is never enough!

Because your day is dictated by a little person and their ever changing mood.

It is no longer acceptable for a "village to raise a child", we have to do it all on our own.

Because in a house with four little ones, everyday is Groundhog Day! And it's sooo easy to lose your sense of identity.

Being a mother has a 24/7 job - options not included in the package are sleep, personal time/space.  Your world revolves around kids.

There is just never enough hours in the day. A mum with a full time job outside of home, a full time job at home and two beautiful daughters I never seem to get anything finished.

It is not hard being a mother because of the warm and love feelings you receive on a daily basis no matter what stage in their life.

The ultimate responsibility with no sick days, annual leave or set hours. So demanding but so rewarding.

Its climbing an emotional Mount Everest, only to find a pile of dirty nappies and old laundry at the top.

It's not a 38 hour working week. It's 24/7 365 days a year, surely there's a union revolt waiting to happen!
