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.

Roly Parks

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.
