Grandad found a home in Yorkshire in 1945 after spending six years fighting and surviving World War 2.
He likes a whisky and hates the ventilation in his front room. Every morning he opens his eyes and a sorrowful “bloody hell” escapes his lips as he realises he’s still blind.
Chesca drinks way too much beer and has moved house a mere 28 times.
As a modern-day performance artist, Chesca feels repressed by the world around her and pissed off at all the men in it. Chesca found a home at her Grandad’s house after spending what felt like most of her life at war.
Jadek is based on the true story of when a working-class woman from Yorkshire moved in with her blind, Polish, 94-year-old Grandad.
Jadek explores how this unexpected turn of events affected both of their lives in the most hilarious, heart breaking and life affirming way.
“Loved the audience members narrating as the audio description. Want to see more of Tasha’s character - she’s amazing!” - Lisa Holdsworth, ITV
“imagine if are approaching this very exciting project with the right attitude. As a blind theatre goer and maker, it is encouraging to see them engaging with blind artists, cast members and audiences and I was encouraged by the types of questions and subjects that were being raised in the rehearsal room.” - Ben Wilson, Agent for Change, Sheffield Theatres
