One of Bryan’s most endearing and beloved characters, Roly Park’s, lives in a town called Kalangadoo – a real town in the South East of Australia. Each week Roly writes a letter to his son, Gene, who is gay and lives in London with his partner, Ahmed, a Moroccan ballet dancer formerly with the Royal Ballet. The letters are about Roly’s life in Kalangadoo and about how Roly views the world as a bright but elderly man living in a small town. The ‘Letters’ are ironic and humorous but also deeply touching.
The stories range from his ongoing encounters with his former wife of fifty years, Sonya, to his run-ins with the town gossip Beryl Coates, or with the hilarious attempt to bury the ashes of his best mate ‘Bull’ Devine.
This is Australian story telling at its finest. A thoroughly entertaining forty five minutes by one of Australia’s finest humorists. Dealing with ageing, facing your maker and trying to stay afloat in a world that bears no resemblance to the one Roly Parks grew up in. Roly’s not complaining about the changes, he’s just trying – like all of us – to make sense of it. Perfect for an audience not forty any more who enjoy a belly laugh and a bit of comfort in knowing that it’s not just them that can’t make sense of the world today.
