What's it about?
Billy Capser 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.
Kestrels 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 forever. Following a sell-out 2016 run, this adaptation of Barry Hines’ much loved 1960s story explores the never-changing, true nature of friendship.
