THE WILL TO BE
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
“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.
