Nov 11-22: Julia Mackey in JAKE'S GIFT (Vancouver)
Back in 2002, Julia Mackey first developed the character of Jake in a mask characterization workshop we held at Pacific Theatre, a process which led to the creation of MERCY WILD. A couple years later Julia traveled to Normandy, and out of that experience created a one-woman-show featuring Jake, as well as a couple other characters. JAKE'S GIFT won top honours at the Victoria Fringe Festival last year, and has been touring since. These next couple weeks we'll have the chance to see the show here in the lower mainland, before Jake takes a bit of a break - to allow Julia to act in HOLY MO at Pacific Theatre in January/February!
