A brutal confrontation between two brothers underpins the dramatic story in Kelly, now being staged at the Illawarra Performing Arts Centre. 

Yet the protagonists are no ordinary siblings.

They are titans of Australian history: Ned Kelly and Dan Kelly.

Set during Ned's final night in prison as he waits to be hung for his crimes, the drama was the winner of two Matilda Awards in 2012.
