Kelly – Hobart

Cowards, Murderers or Heroes? Life or Death?

About
THE THEATRE ROYAL PRESENTS A QUEENSLAND THEATRE COMPANY PRODUCTION
Ned Kelly is about to hang for his crimes, but his final night in prison is interrupted by the arrival of his brother Dan, disguised as a priest. Supposedly killed at the siege of Glenrowan, Dan is intent on moving north to Queensland and forgetting his past. To do so, he needs Ned’s blessing and forgiveness. But the last time they saw each other, Dan tried to shoot Ned dead.

So begins a brutal confrontation by two titans of Australian history. Facing the sins of their past, each blames the other for their downfall. And neither will escape unharmed.

Kelly boasts a brilliant cast of three of Brisbane’s finest actors – led by Matilda Award winner Steven Rooke who plays Ned Kelly in a powerful performance with humour, heart and depth.

“Kelly is a subtle, smart imagining of Ned Kelly’s last night alive, charged with unfulfilled potential and torturous regret, and deeply moving to the bitter end.”
