Holding The Man is an achingly funny and heartbreaking true life story about the relationship between Australian writer, actor and activist Timothy Conigrave and John Caleo. This multi-award winning play explores the highs and lows of their remarkable partnership and is a celebration that speaks across generations, sexual preference and culture.
Falling in love with the captain of the football team at an all-male Melbourne High School in the 1970s was never going to be universally popular. But for Tim, being young and gay in Australia was exciting but uncharted territory.
Holding The Man is based on best-selling Conigrave’s memoirs, which were reprinted 13 times around the world and won the United Nations Human Rights Award for Non-Fiction in 1995.
The cast of Holding The Man includes Jane Turner, the Australian actress best known for writing and starring in cult comic hit Kath And Kim.
