AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Eleven-year-old Jack suffers terrible headaches as he worries that his grandmother will soon die, his mother's boyfriend will move in—or leave—and especially that the school bully will get revenge for Jack's ill-timed joke at his expense’ (source: NLA).

Adaptations

I Am Jack Eva Di Cesare , Sandra Eldridge , Tim McGarry , Monkey Baa Theatre for Young People , 2008 single work drama children's

'"I Am Jack" explores the journey of Jack, a smart, funny 11-year-old boy being badly bullied at school. This true story takes us on a touching and sometimes comical journey as Jack moves from victim to victor...

'Using the metaphor of an island in the central design concept, Jack tells his story from what at first appears to be the confines of his bedroom. As he tells his tale, lighting and sound emphasise Jack's emotional turmoil and create the shape and persona of the bully in his life.'
