Belvoir is proud to bring Holding the Man, a deeply moving play adapted by Tommy Murphy from Tim Conigrave’s memoir, back to stage from 9th March to 14th April, 2024.

Tim Conigrave's 1995 memoir changed Australia, and Tommy Murphy's 2006 adaptation became an instant hit, introducing a new audience to this heartfelt and laugh-out-loud-in-the-sadness story of queer identity and the quirks of love.

At a Jesuit boys’ school, in 1970s Australia, Tim’s eye falls on the footy captain, John. To their mutual incredulity, they fall in love. A love that lasts as they – and the society around them – change, mature.

When they both test positive to something called HIV, dreams, liberations, boundless possibilities vanish into the ether. But Tim and John have each other, and they’ll need to hold on tight for what’s to come.
