CORONAVIRUS: All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020, work is underway to re-open safely. Some venues are showing on-line productions or outside productions - even a few covid safe internal ones and a number of tours and shows have been rescheduled for later in 2020 and throughout 2021. We are updating our listings as much as possible to reflect the changes as they are reported.
Up 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...?Performers Paul Barnhill (Jud), Daniel Harcourt (MacDowall), Michael Hugo (Billy), Malcolm James (Anderson), Clive Llewellyn (Mr Farthing), Ged McKenna (Mr Gryce), Heather Phoenix (Miss Fenton), Joseph Raisbrook (Tibbut), Peter Rylands (Mr Sugden), Connie Walker (Mrs Casper).
