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. HeGÇÖs seeking NedGÇÖs blessing and forgiveness before heading north to start a new life in Queensland. But after everything theyGÇÖve been through together over the years, and how all of this has affected them, a blessing is not an easy ask.
Referencing historical events, Kelly is a masterfully balanced with light and shade, and the quick-fire banter between the characters resonates with a crass but irresistible brand of Australian humour.
