Living on an estate in a poor mining community, ‘Our Billy’ wants to break free from his difficult upbringing. Bullied by his family and fellow students, Billy finds hope and a sense of freedom in an unexpected place; through his kestrel, KES.

The film adaptation of the novel, directed by legendary filmmaker Ken Loach, quickly sealed the story’s place as a much-loved classic.

KES remains to this day a relevant and poignant coming-of-age story, reverberating down the generations with its warmth and humour.

Masquerade’s production of KES is adapted and directed by Ian Moore and stars Jayne Giordanella, Kieran Kelly, Stephen Oliver, and Alex Weenink, supported by Michelle Chetcuti, Leah Grech, Melissa Mercieca, Lucia Mifsud and Ben Tonna.

It forms part of the Out of the Blue project supported by Arts Council Malta. Tickets www.bluebox.com.mt E: info@masquerademalta.com T: 79793737
