Kenny

Date: 17 Nov 2020

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

A knight in shining overalls, portable toilet engineer Kenny Smyth is proud of his job, despite his Dad’s put-downs and the ignorance of a public that can’t get by without him.

In this big-hearted and hilarious salute to ordinary decency, Kenny’s off-beat humour and optimism are a timely and inspirational reminder that dignity is earned not awarded, and that all that glitters isn’t necessarily gold.

Adapted for the stage by playwright Steve Rodgers from the smash-hit Aussie mockumentary by filmmaking siblings Shane and Clayton Jacobson, Kenny stars Ben Wood as the dunny man with a big heart, a big wrench and a bottomless bucket of the choicest one-liners.
