Jadek

Jadek is based on the true story of when a young, working class woman from Castleford 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.

A new play exploring identity, culture and migration. Seen through the relationship between a blind, Polish Grandfather and his English Granddaughter.

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.

Tasha found a home at her Grandad’s house after spending what felt like most of her life at war; she drinks way too much beer, has moved house over 30 times, and is trying to sell her children’s storybook to London publishers.
