La Boite and Wrightson Stewart

We are excited to announce our partnership with La Boite on the return to Brisbane of Holding The Man (16 Feb - 9 March 2013).

Timothy Conigrave’s memoir is one of Australia’s great love stories, and Tommy Murphy’s stage version captures all its special magic. David Berthold’s definitive original production, last seen in London’s West End, returns to Brisbane this February with an all new cast. VIP pre-sale tickets are now available ahead of the official 2013 season launch on 30 November. This ultimate theatre experience includes entry into the private VIP lounge, designed by Wrightson Stewart, reserved VIP seating, two complimentary drinks per person, and a free program. Only 80 VIP tickets are available for each performance (excluding preview performances)  and will not be available for purchase after 30 November.  
Breathtakingly honest and achingly funny, Holding the Man is a heart-wrenching account of a 15-year relationship that weathered disapproval, separation, temptation and ultimately, death. It's a story and a celebration that speaks across generations, sexual preferences and cultures. 

Tim Conigrave and John Caleo met in high school in the mid-1970s. 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.

Holding the Man set box office records for Griffin Theatre Company in 2006. It enjoyed four sell-out seasons in Sydney, including transfers to the Sydney Opera House and Belvoir, before moving to the Brisbane Powerhouse, Melbourne Theatre Company and into London's West End.

Now, due to persistent and overwhelming demand, La Boite brings the original production back to the Brisbane stage with a fresh new cast.
