About Holding The Man

West End Premiere of the multi award winning play from Australia, Holding The Man.

'A theatrical triumph' Variety

'Wickedly funny' The Australian

Based on the much loved award winning book by Tim Conigrave, adapted for the stage by acclaimed playwright Tommy Murphy, Holding the Man is a hilariously funny, tender and moving play following the remarkable true life love story of Tim Conigrave and John Caleo. It is a celebration that speaks across generations, sexual preference and culture.

Recreated for its UK premiere by the original Australian Director David Berthold and Tony Award winning Designer Brian Thomson.

One of Australia's most celebrated comic actors, Jane Turner, from the Australian TV hit Kath and Kim, will be making her West End debut.

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.
Holding the Man has become one of the most successful Australian stage productions in recent years, breaking box office records, achieving a total of 4 sell out seasons in Sydney, and collecting numerous awards including 2007 NSW Premier's Literary Award for Best Play, the 2007 AWGIE for Best Play and the Philip Parsons Award.
