BSS: Henry VI & Richard III (3-8 March 2015)


BronksTheatre: Abridged Henry VI (Parts 1, 2, 3) & Richard III by William Shakespeare.
Directed by Colma O’Luanaigh & Catriona White.

That gold must round engirt these brows of mine..
Henry V is England’s darling, France’s conqueror, then suddenly he is dead, at 34 – and a 9-month-old baby is the ‘anointed ruler’ of Europe’s most warlike brood, the Plantagenets! Before he reaches his teens France is on the rise again, led by a17-year-old girl, Joan of Arc.

As the young Henry and his fractious nobles have to deal with that, a time-bomb is ticking, set in motion 30 years before when Henry Bolingbroke deposed Richard II. Who shall be king? Who should be king?

This is not ‘A Game Of Thrones’ or ‘Lord Of The Rings'; this throne is real – and England is the prize! Come and immerse yourself in this fast-paced and epic staging of England’s most turbulent half-century – the Wars of The Roses.

It is with great disappointment that the ITG is announcing that our production of Quietly by Owen McCafferty, directed by Lyn Wainright, has to be postponed until later this year. We regret any inconvenience caused to our loyal audience members, but professional commitments of the cast and crew have led to this tough decision. We will now proceed with reimbursing all those who have already purchased tickets. Please accept our apologies, but we do hope to see you at the performance later in 2015.


BATS: My Boy Jack (17-25 April 2015)


By David Haig
Directed by Jill Franks
BATS Little Theatre, Paardenmarkt 111, 2000 Antwerp

The year is 1913 and war with Germany is imminent. Rudyard Kipling’s determination to send his myopic son Jack to war triggers a bitter family conflict which leaves Britain’s renowned patriot devastated by the warrings of his own greatest passions: his love for children – above all his own – and his devotion to Kind and Country.

‘My Boy Jack’ was first staged at Hampstead Theatre, London, in 1997, with David Haig himself playing Rudyard Kipling. Ten years later it was filmed for television with Daniel Radcliffe as Jack and Haig as Kipling.

To commemorate WWI, BATS is bringing this moving play to the Antwerp stage.
