15 September - 20 October 2012
Ned Kelly sits in a grimy cell at Old Melbourne Gaol on the night before his execution. His brother and fellow gang member Dan, who Ned believes died at the siege of Glenrowan, visits disguised as a priest. He's seeking Ned's blessing and forgiveness before heading north to start a new life in Queensland.
But after everything they've been through together over the years, a blessing is not an easy ask. Brothers of the same blood and name, but with very different perspectives of their past. Cowards, murderers or heroes? Life or death? Now, at the end, they confront each other, striving to understand each other.
Referencing historical events, Kelly is the latest literary achievement of Brisbane-based playwright Matthew Ryan. It is masterfully balanced with light and shade, and the quick-fire banter between the characters resonates with a crass but irresistible brand of Australian humour.
