THE WILL TO BE
Bakehouse Theatre

Drama

Written & Directed By: Mark Salvestro

A University Office, 1962: homosexuality is illegal. The fear of communism is in
the air. A lecturer is dismissed. His secret is out. Will he choose legacy or the law?

One man’s exploration of sexuality, society and shame, laced with the words of
Shakespeare.

“Compelling and must-see theatre” Melbourne Observer.

“Beautifully crafted…exceptionally performed” Weekend Notes.

“A fresh perspective on Australia’s history of homosexuality and the persecution that many faced” My Melbourne Arts.
