Barry Versus Kelly

Time | April 12 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Venue | Gem Theatre, EMERALD VICAustralia + Google Map
Cost | $33

The tragedy of Australia’s folk hero, Ned Kelly, and the judge who hanged him.

“One of the best stage shows I have seen!”

“It was brilliant! I highly recommend it!”

Feedback suggests that this, over 135 years later, this might be as emotionally as close to the story as you can get.

Feedback from a woman at the Beechworth show said –

“I felt I was right there – Felt how those people must have felt!”

Lynette Williams said of the Mansfield show.

“It was brilliant. I highly recommend it!”

Steve O’Callaghan said,

“One of the very best stage shows I have seen!”

A musical drama by Felix Meagher (with additional music by Lou Hesterman and Cyril Moran) about the trial and execution of Ned Kelly in November 1880. Barry Versus Kelly focuses on the confrontation between Ned and the Judge, Sir Redmond Barry who is haunted by Ned’s last words to him.” I will see you where I go.” Barry is fiercely determined to see Irish rebels like Ned Kelly punished, but he fears he might be making a martyr out of Ned.


Declining in health and suffering delusions, Barry wrestles with his conscience and the fears that his family in Ireland sees him as a traitor. 

Meanwhile, Ellen Kelly, on the day before the hanging, sings to Ned that he is the Loyal Son. Barry finally signs the papers that condemn Kelly and in a dying speech asks that his family be told that “I took a rebel with me.”


Featuring the actors/singers Ned – Anthony Penhall, Ellen Kelly – Cora Browne, Judge Barry – Felix Meagher, Governor of the Goal John Castieau/ Police Commissioner Standish – Colin Driscoll, John “Red” Kelly/Chief Secretary – Matthew Hadgraft, Chloe – Jodi Toering
