Australia’s most infamous and beloved figure is set to collide with fiction in the Queensland Theatre Company’s Kelly.
First published in the 10 April 2015 edition of the Warragul & Baw Baw Citizen.
Three renowned Brisbane actors will perform the original play on Tuesday 26 May at the West Gippsland Arts Centre.
The drama portrays the fictitious last conversation between brothers Ned and Dan Kelly, imagining if Dan did not die in the famous Glenrowan shootout.
During the final night before his hanging, Ned (Steven Rooke) is joined in his cell by his brother (Kevin Spink) disguised as a priest asking for one final deed.
The production was created by Queensland writer Matthew Ryan and focuses on the action within Kelly’s cell.
