Kes archiveUp in the Yorkshire mining towns of 1960s Britain, a little hope was a dangerous thing. Social disintegration and disenchantment taught you to accept your lot; or else get the spirit kicked out of you. Yes, back then, life was certainly grim up North... Especially for our hero; streetwise school-kid Billy Casper. Emotionally neglected - bullied at school and at home - his is a pretty bleak existence; smoking, cadging money and getting into scraps...Until, that is, Kes comes along. Kes is a kestrel that Billy rears and trains; Kes is hope. Together, their friendship shines amid the gloom; but how long can it last...? Come and celebrate our first birthday with a theatrical event in our Main Space combining drama, outdoor spectacle and live falconry.
Performers Sally Carman (Mrs Casper - Billy's mother), Jacob James Beswick (Billy), Ben Burman (Jud), Ray Castleton (older Billy), Jim Pope (Mr Sugden), Jow Rose (Mrs MacDowell).
Book by Barry Hines (A Kestrel for a Knave). Producer Cast. Producer Right Up Our Street. Adapted by Philip Osment. Adapted by Kully Thiarai. Director Philip Osment. Director Kully Thiarai. Design Emma Donovan. Director Lucy Hind (movement).
