Billy the Kid returns to the Unicorn Theatre


The Unicorn Theatre are reviving their hit 2007 stage adaptation of Michael’s book ‘Billy the Kid’ this autumn.

Voted the Best Children’s Show of 2007 by Time Out Critics’ Choice, the production is reuniting the original cast including much‐loved British actor Dudley Sutton as he returns to reprise his role as Billy.
The story is told through the eyes of Billy as an elderly man, who lives with Sam’s parents but spends his days on the park bench. Billy tells Sam about his past, his passion for football when he was a boy, and how he came to play for Chelsea. He recalls his memories from the War, when his life was turned upside‐down.

This heart‐warming story of football, war and dreams is for children 8+ and their families and runs from 24th September – 30th October.
