1914 saw the beginning of World War I, the war to end all wars. In keeping with the 100th anniversary of the conflict, CentreStage is pleased to present My Boy Jack.
The year is 1913. War with Germany is imminent. Rudyard Kipling, the British Empire's greatest apologist, is at the peak of his literary fame. This play explores the nature of a man who loses his balance when devotion to family and country, clash. World War I breaks out, and Kipling's son, Jack, is determined to fight, but the Army and the Navy both reject him because of his extremely poor eyesight. Undaunted, Kipling uses his influence to land Jack a commission in the Irish Guards, sparking off a bitter family conflict. The play is based on historical facts.
My Boy Jack is written by David Haig and directed by Geoff Ball. Cast in order of appearance: Bryen Stoddard, Gabriel Skaling, Carole Ball, John H. Smith, Mike Jorgensen, Emily Decker, Mike Butler, Geoff Ball.
