Perth Theatre at Horsecross Arts presents

‘It’s like everything goes quiet. All around. All the noise. Till it’s you and her. That’s it. Just to look at her and fly her. That’s enough for me.’

At 15 years old, Billy’s future is already mapped out for him: paper round. PE lessons, pits … purgatory. Bullied by his brother, ignored by his mam, and picked on by his teachers, young Billy Casper dodges and scrapes his way through life.

Until he steals a kestrel chick from its nest.

Billy takes her, feeds her, raises her, trains her, and flies her - and something suddenly awakes inside him

The unforgettable story of boy and kestrel. Lu Kemp directs Robert Alan Evans’ adaptation of Barry Hines iconic novel, which became Ken Loach’s breakthrough film, Kes.
