One Day – a story of love and missed opportunity
by Bob Walker
After spending the night of their
1988 college graduation together,
Dexter (Jim Sturgess) and Emma
(Anne Hathaway) are shown each
year on the same date (15th July).
Emma is a girl of principle, Dexter is
a wealthy philanderer and moments
of their extraordinary relationship,
their tears and laughter, are charted
on the same day over the next two
Why it took so long for Dexter to
realise that what he had been
looking for was there for him all
along is beyond reason but he
gives Emma moments of joy and
happiness and she transforms him
into a better person over the years.
Both lead actors give excellent
performances and the audience will
feel the electricity between them.

Romola Garai as Sylvie, Rafe
Spall as Ian, Ken Stott (Rebus)
and Patricia Clarkson as Dexter’s
This fine film was directed by

State Theatre Company of SA presents Holding the Man
Holding the Man is the funny, sad and
celebratory account of growing up gay,
adapted by Tommy Murphy from the award-
winning memoir by Australian writer/actor/
activist, Timothy Conigrave. In 2003 the
book was listed as one of the “100 Favourite
Australian Books” by the Australian Society
of Authors for its 40th anniversary, and it is
published as a Penguin Classic.
The play made its West End debut in April
2010, starring Jane Turner and Simon Burke.
It is set in the mid-seventies – satin baggies
and chunky platforms reign supreme, while
Jethro Tull does battle with glam-rock for the
airwaves ... and at an all-boy Catholic school
in Melbourne, Timothy falls wildly and sweetly
in love with the captain of the football team.
So begins a relationship that will last for 15
years, a love affair that weathers disapproval,
separation and ultimately, death.
Holding the Man recreates that relationship
with honesty and insight: the intimacy,
constraints, temptations, and the strength of
heart both partners may need.
Director Rosalba Clemente says, “When
Adam offered me Holding the Man to direct, I
was in tears.
I knew Tim Conigrave, who was a year ahead
of me in the NIDA acting course – a brilliant
young man who died all too young. The play
has captivated the hearts of audiences right
around the world.
It is a celebration of Tim – angry, hilarious,
vibrating with intelligence and full of passion
for his life and his art.
It is also a beautiful love story and a night to fall
in love with ... a night to remember Tim by.”
This show will also have a Red Carpet
event on 28 October following that night’s
performance at the Dunstan Playhouse.
Holding the Man plays from October 21st
to November 13th. Bookings at Bass.
