The Collected Works of Billy the Kid

This event is in the past. This is an archive page for reference.

Allow yourself to be transported by the imagination of one of the world's most brilliant contemporary writers – Michael Ondaatje.

Shot through with moments of searing truth and insight, an exquisite sensuality and a savagery akin to madness, this is a beautiful expressionistic portrayal of a life lived wild, outside of law, free to experience everything that life and death have to offer…

Ondaatje's stunning kaleidoscope of poetry, prose, song and eyewitness accounts brought vividly to life on stage by actor Gordon Peaston… a grippingly beautiful and savage journey through the near madness of the old Wild West and the outlaw soul of William Bonney – Billy the Kid.

Gordon's performance was short-listed for The Stage's Acting Excellence award in 1997, receiving a unanimous vote for Best Newcomer.

Olibec Productions will be donating all its profits from this production to Scene and Heard children's charity
