Teddington Theatre Club’s next production in the main auditorium of the Hampton Hill Playhouse will be a tribute to mark the 100th anniversary of the start of World War 1. My Boy Jack, written by David Haig, will be directed by Wesley Henderson Roe and Jennifer Laney.

The play is set in the build up to the outbreak of World War 1. Rudyard Kipling is determined that his under-age, severely short-sighted son John should enlist. John has twice been rejected for military service due to his poor eyesight. Undeterred, Kipling pulls strings and John is given a commission in the Irish Guards. The result of Kipling’s actions will haunt his family for the rest of their lives.

The club will also hold a special event on Sunday 29 June where directors Wesley Henderson Roe and Jennifer Laney will hold a post-show discussion for ticket-holders on that day.

Playing dates:

Sunday June 29th – Saturday July 5th

Performance times:

Sunday 6pm, weekdays 7.45pm

Ticket prices:

£12.00 & £14.00

Book now: 0845 838 8729 (10am – 8pm) or online.
