We are staging “My Boy Jack” by David Haigh at the Brentwood Theatre on 25th, 26th and 27th February.
“My Boy Jack” shows Kipling’s unwavering determination to get his son, Jack, successfully enlisted in the army just before the start of WWI and the devastating impact this has on the Kipling family.
The performances will start at 8:00 p.m.
Tickets cost £13 and £11 (concession) and can be ordered online at the theatre’s website:
The play is produced in association with Nick Hern Books.
We gratefully acknowledge the support of the Brentwood Arts Council.
