Overview

World Premiere

When your work can’t get any lower your expectations can only soar.

A knight in shining overalls, Kenny is proud of his work, despite his Dad’s harsh judgements and the ignorant members of the public who take him for granted. In this classic riff on decency, Kenny’s off-beat humour and wide-eyed wonder at life’s possibilities are an inspirational reminder that all that glitters is not necessarily gold…

Triumphant and poignant, Clayton and Shane Jacobson’s much-loved film has been adapted for the stage by Steve Rodgers, with the hilarious Ben Wood (THE BIG TIME) as Kenny.

Reviews

"There's a quintessentially Australian spirit that washes over Kenny... irreverent but earnest... self-deprecating but meaningful" The Guardian (for the 2006 film)

Playwright's Note

“When Mark came to me with the idea of adapting KENNY, my mind immediately shot back to my experience seeing the film over ten years ago, and the enormous heart of the character and story. In our current age, so beholden to aspirational values, KENNY is an antidote to that win at all costs mentality, claiming decency and dignity as true measures of what it means to live a good life. Kind of like a Ted talk, come and hear KENNY talk about the types of work too many of us turn up our noses at. It’ll be warm, funny, and an education in sanitation.” – Adapted for the stage by Steve Rodgers
