John Alker-Jones and Dr Bruce Pennay – scene stealers in At The Hip

There’ve been some scene stealers in At The Hip including former planner with the Albury Wodonga Development Corporation, John Alker-Jones, and historian and academic, Dr Bruce Pennay who some have compared with the two older gentleman who provide commentary on The Muppets.

Played by Paddy Brown and Matt Davidson respectively, the memories of the two men provide some of the framework for the show that opens with Gough Whitlam’s grand vision for Albury to be a national growth centre to rival Canberra.

In this excerpt from the show, John and Dr Bruce talk about what brought them to Albury-Wodonga: John 40 years ago and Dr Bruce 30 years ago. You’ll find more interviews with the cast and some other memories of Albury-Wodonga here.

Don’t miss At The Hip! Tickets are still available for the remaining performances 17 & 18 November at 8pm and 3pm and 8pm on Saturday 19 November. Buy tickets.
