My Boy Jack

I attended a performance of "My Boy Jack" at the Cambridge Arts Theatre last night. I know there has been a thread about this before, but I thought I had to say just how excellent I thought it was.

David Haig, in particular, I thought summed up the agony that Kipling must have gone through (knowing how much responsibility he bore for his son being in the trenches when we need not have been) without any excessive wailing and gnashing of teeth. I presume that David Haig must have an interest in the Great War. I note that he not only acted in this play but wrote and produced it. He also starred at the start of the recent very successful run of "Journey's End".

I think that the play is in fact about to finish at Cambridge, which is the end of its current tour, but should it reappear at a later date I would recommend it to Pals.
