It’s the devil, they screamed. 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. A gripping, drama on mateship, brotherhood and masculinity so unhinged it makes Russell Crowe look beautiful and Wentworth juvenile.  Welcome to the “Bitches Brew” of theatre.
