Barry versus Kelly is a dramatic narrative about the trial and execution of the famous Irish/Australian outlaw Ned Kelly, and the haunting of Judge Redmond Barry (the judge who sentenced Kelly) with the words – ‘I will see you where I go.’ Set inside the freezing walls of the Melbourne Goal, the play and music explore the raw courage of Ned, and his mother Ellen, and the anxiety of the judge who fears he might be making a martyr of Kelly. With script and music by Felix Meagher (authour of The Man They Call The Banjo), and additional music by Lou Hesterman, Barry Versus Kelly is a play that all Australians should see.
The cast of Barry versus Kelly is: Anthony Penhall (Ned);
Danny Spooner (Red Kelly, Anthony Trollope, James Barry and Chief Secretary Berry);
Cora Browne (Ellen Kelly and Louisa Barrow);
Lucinda Barratt (Chloe) and
Felix Meagher (Judge Barry).
