By Tommy Murphy
8 February - 3 March 2007
Tim and John met in high school in the mid-1970’s. Tim was in the school production of Romeo & Juliet and had a crush on John. John was the captain of the football team and wanted to play for Essendon. By the end of high school even their school yearbook acknowledged them as the year’s cutest couple.
Breathtakingly honest and achingly funny, Holding The Man is a heart-wrenching account of a fifteen-year relationship that weathered disapproval, separation, temptation and ultimately, death. It’s a story and a celebration that speaks across generations, sexual preference and cultures.
