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.
