BILLY ON THE BOIL

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - TV Guide - - Front Page -

In this trav­el­ogue of sorts, echoes of that Con­nolly (left with Jana Wendt) are still there, but so is the ev­i­dence of the Parkin­son’s dis­ease which has slowed him down phys­i­cally, while sharp­en­ing his ap­pre­ci­a­tion for life and his in­spir­ing com­mit­ment to suck­ing ever last bit of mar­row from its bones. He sums it up best: “If you vol­un­teer to take life se­ri­ously, it’s go­ing to get you. You can ei­ther break down and com­plain about how mis­er­able life is, or you can have a go at it and sur­vive.” He then fol­lows these wise words with a joke about his bucket list plan to see out his fi­nal days sheep shag­ging while in­ject­ing heroin and it’s per­fec­tion. NEWS this TV se­ries is set to be adapted for Broad­way will be mu­sic to the ears of fans who crushed on its sassy sto­ry­lines set in the coun­try mu­sic in­dus­try and cast per­for­mances, es­pe­cially Con­nie Brit­ton, Hay­den Pan­netierre (both pic­tured) and Aussie ac­tor Clare Bowen.
