British American Theatre Company

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.

17, 18, 22, 23, 24 & 25 April 2015 – 8 pm
19 April 2015 – 3 pm

BATS: Jack and the Beanstalk (28-30 Jan 2017)

Can Jack, his Mum, Simon, Daisy the Cow and Flunkit save poor Demelza from a fate worse than death? Will the sneaking, snivelling Slime succeed in bringing the Giant’s foul plan to a successful conclusion, or will Edena the Eco Fairy come to the rescue? .

BATS is delighted to present a classic reworking of the beloved fairy tale, Jack and the Beanstalk, by Ben Crocker, directed by Barry O’Halpin.
