KENNY

3 - 6 Mar

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

By The Jacobson Brothers
Adapted for the stage by Steve Rodgers

Adapted for stage from Clayton and Shane Jacobson’s much-loved Australian film, KENNY stars the hilarious Ben Wood as the fearless plumber and eternal optimist who looks for the best in every situation – even when his job is literally down the toilet.

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…

Direct from its premiere at Sydney Festival, this big-hearted and hilarious salute to the underdog is both triumphant and poignant.

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