Holding The Man

Written by Tommy Murphy
Based on the book by Timothy Conigrave

The course of teenage love rarely runs smooth, but it is a white-water adventure if you are a gay boy in an all-male school in 1970s Melbourne with a crush on the captain of the football team. Still, despite the odds, Tim and John become close and for fifteen years their relationship survives everything life throws at it – 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.

Please note that “Holding the Man” contains adult themes and may not be suitable for all audiences.
