In Strangers in Between Shane has fled his family and is seeking refuge in Sydney's Kings Cross

Confused and naïve, he meets two strangers: the ultra-urban Will, who offers brotherhood, sex and something unexpected; and Peter, a fifty-year-old gay man whose mother is dying in a nursing home

With their help or hindrance Shane grapples to reconcile himself with events from his past

But how can he move on when he can't even use laundry powder?

2006 NSW Premier's Literary Award - Best Play

Holding the Man is based on Timothy Conigrave's celebrated memoir of the same name which won the 1995 UN Human Rights Award for Non-Fiction and was voted one of Australia's top 100 most favourite books

Tommy Murphy's stage adaptation faithfully captures the book's heart-wrenchingly honest portrayal of a fifteen-year relationship, but also succeeds in transforming it into a unique theatrical experience that is wholly his own
