Ned Kelly’s Mother
23 October, 2018 - 4 November, 2018$38
The battle for power and money is perennial.
When people are pushed too far lawlessness, violence and heartbreak is inevitable.
Gumboot Theatre, in collaboration with award winning Australian playwright Neil Cole, brings to life the tale of Ned Kelly through the lens of his mother.
This story resonates with contemporary society: self-interest in the media, religious and ethnic discrimination, the fight for a sense of belonging and place, avarice and how the system may not always play fair.
Ned Kelly’s Mother explores the iconic legend through the context of daily life and the reality of what mothers will do to nurture and protect their children. The story belongs to every parent.
