AUTUMN PRODUCTION - MY BOY JACK

my boy jack

Preformance dates: November 8th - 9th - 10th

My Boy Jack, written by David Haig, is based on a true story. It tells of a nation at war, and offers an intimate portrait of one family's complex and divided experience in it.

 

'My Boy Jack'

1914-18

"Have you news of my boy Jack? "
Not this tide.
"When d'you think that he'll come back?"
Not with this wind blowing, and this tide.
"Has any one else had word of him?"
Not this tide.
For what is sunk will hardly swim,
Not with this wind blowing, and this tide.

"Oh, dear, what comfort can I find?"
None this tide,
Nor any tide,
Except he did not shame his kind---
Not even with that wind blowing, and that tide.

Then hold your head up all the more,
This tide,
And every tide;
Because he was the son you bore,
And gave to that wind blowing and that tide.
