The drama portrays the fictitious last conversation between brothers Ned and Dan Kelly, imagining if Dan did not die in the famous Glenrowan shootout.

During the final night before his hanging, Ned (Steven Rooke) is joined in his cell by his brother (Kevin Spink) disguised as a priest asking for one final deed.

The production was created by Queensland writer Matthew Ryan and focuses on the action within Kelly’s cell.
