Vale the playwright and director Aidan Fennessy. Funny man, great artist. A face I was always happy to see at a party. Much love to his partner, Nova, and family. This is so sad for our arts community.

In 2018, Aidan Fennessy won Best Director Professional Theatre for the Tasmanian Theatre Company’s stunning production of Born From Animals. We are very sorry to report that Travis passed away last Sunday. He is mourned by the theatre community throughout Australia. Aiden’s musical play What Rhymes with Cars and Girls has also been seen recently in Tasmania and his departure is a blow for the major companies as well as his friends in regional centres such as Hobart. Vale Aidan Fennessy
First and last post for a while.
R.I.P to quiet giant and close friend, always willing to connect, share and engage in the furthering of every of my, and anyone’s artistic pursuits.
In a time with desperate need for connection, this play will have posthumous weight.
Keep ‘em close folks.
So very saddened to hear the news that Melbourne actor/playwright/director Aidan Fennessy has passed away. In 2006, I received a Moosehead Award to develop a one man show about male infertility. ‘Spaznuts’ was my first attempt at a fully biographical show, & the Mooshead Committee wisely paired Aidan with me. I was delighted. I’d been a fan ever since seeing him in ‘The Trade’ at MICF 2002 with Jim Russell & Marty Sheargold. We kind of knew each other in that ‘around the traps’ sort of way. At our first rehearsal I banged on about ‘The Trade’ and his body of work. Fenno didn’t even bother to break eye contact when he said ‘Damian, I need to be honest. I haven’t seen a single thing you’ve ever done.’ His brutal honesty was just one of many attributes I grew to admire as he carefully nurtured me through the tricky terrain of theatrically exposing my own story. He modestly and deftly helped me deliver a show of which I’m still immensely proud. Since then we have only occasionally passed bows as our skiffs tacked in different directions in the choppy waters of opening nights & festival bars. A great talent and wonderful bloke. Vale Fenno.
We are still working on getting more details about the death, as a family statement on the death is yet to be released.
