A student production of KES is coming to the Theatre Royal in Bury St Edmunds next month.

Adapted from Barry Hines’ novel, ‘A Kestrel for a Knave’, the summer school group returns after a year’s hiatus to perform the show.

This year’s students have been working with Theatre Royal’s associate artist David Whitney to produce the show, which is described as ‘a charming and moving story which is sure to be a highlight of the summer season’.

The show runs from Thursday 1 to Saturday 3 September.

Tickets cost £12 (general) and £10 (concessions). To book or for more information, call the box office on 01284 769505 or visit
