Holding the Man is a play written by Tommy Murphy from the book by Timothy Conigrave.

Star crossed lovers often overcome the odds to be with each other, and being gay in 1970s Melbourne is definitely something that is not easy for two catholic boys to conquer. But despite the odds, Tim and John’s 15-year relationship survives everything life throws at them – the separations, the discriminations, the temptations, the jealousies and the losses – until the only problem that love can’t solve turns up to part them.

After a sold out season in 2022, Taylor Made Productions is thrilled to present Tommy Murphy’s heart-wrenchingly honest story of growing up gay in Australia during one of the darkest times in LGBTQIA+ history, into a world of reflection and discovery.
