BULLYING and its impact comes under the spotlight when Monkey Baa Theatre Company brings its tour of I Am Jack to Koorliny Arts Centre, Kwinana.

I Am Jack explores the often overlooked insidious taunting and teasing bullies inflict on their victims. The story centres on Jack, who is smart, funny and bullied.

What starts as an off-the-cuff joke during a handball competition soon turns into a set of circumstances in which Jack is no longer safe in the playground.

With the use of self-expression through photography, Jack begins to make sense of his world, of his relationships with others and most importantly, with himself.

His journey is touching and sometimes comical as he moves from victim to victor.

Audiences will be delighted and informed as they watch one actor play 11 characters, moving with ease between each one.

From the award-winning company that brought audiences Pete the Sheep, The Bugalugs Bum Thief, Milli Jack and the Dancing Cat and Emily Eyefinger, I am Jack is stimulating and entertaining theatre that should be on every school-aged child’s to-watch list.
