AT LEEDS PLAYHOUSE
Billy Caper is just another one of those kids off the estate; living with his mother and bully of a brother Jud.
He’s all alone, then he finds ‘Kes’. Stick Legs. Big Head. Pile of Scruff.
Kestrals are the hardest birds to train, but not for Billy. He feeds her, cares for her and trains her. Together they are ready to fly. And everything goes quiet, as all his troubles and worries fade into the horizon.
Billy has all he needs and all he wants, until he makes a fatal decision that changes the course of things for ever.
Following a sell-out run, this adaptation of Barry Hines 1960’s story explores the never changing true nature of friendship.
Kes takes place at the Leeds Playhouse Pop Up Theatre until 16 February To book call 0113 213 7700.
