Holding the Man
October 5, 2022 @ 7:30 pm - October 8, 2022 @ 10:00 pm$40 – $45
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 us – 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 both stage and screen adaptations of Timothy Conigrave’s memoir of the same name, Tommy Murphy’s Holding the Man transforms the book’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.
