Description:
"Strangers in Between" -- There's a climate of fear in friendly Goulbourn and Shane is forced from his family, and flees to Kings Cross. A lost boy in a loopy neighbourhood, Shane is unsure of his sexuality, more unsure of how to find intimacy and completely thrown by having to choose between laundry liquid and powder. He meets two strangers -- the very-Sydney Will, who offers brotherhood, sex and something unexpected; and the beguiling Peter, a 50-year-old gay man whose mother is dying in a nursing home. After Shane's brother Ben makes a baffling appearance, a surprising relationship is forged. A relationship that will cleanse and heal. This is a warm, insightful and funny coming-of-age story with endearing characters and very well-observed dialogue from one of Australia's most talented emerging playwrights. "Holding the Man" - "Holding the Man" is breathtakingly honest, achingly funny and a completely 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.
