There are seven characters (four women, three men) in the show:

- Amelia (Amy): “a slight, flaxen-haired girl of nineteen”
- Mother: “sturdy and stoical”
- Minna: “young, pretty”
- Hoffman (Joseph Kerman): “familiar, inclined to stoutness, but good-looking”
- Arno:: “in his early twenties, and looks even younger than he really is”
- Hertz (Captain Bragg): “well along in years, rheumatic, but tremendously self-important”

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.
