Striking the right chord

Last month, playwright Tommy Murphy's adaptation of Melbourne-born actor Tim Conigrave's memoir Holding the Man was short-listed for the NSW Premier's Literary Award. If there's anyone left in Sydney's theatre community who hasn't heard of Murphy after Holding the Man's third season opens this week at the Opera House, there won't be for long. "I really believe in the theatre," the 27-year-old says. The seventh of eight children in a Catholic family, Murphy grew up in Queanbeyan. It's a background that predisposed him to the communal creativity of theatre - Kelsey Munro
