jake's gift | april 6-16

JESUS HOPPED THE 'A' TRAIN is still running strong (closing this Saturday night!), and we're already gearing up for JAKE'S GIFT, just around the corner.

When a crusty, down-on-his-luck WW2 veteran reluctantly makes the trip to Juno Beach to honour his brother Chester, his encounter with a precocious ten-year-old challenges the old soldier to confront some long-ignored ghosts. Born at Pacific Theatre in 2002, Jake has spent the past three years playing to standing ovations all across Canada – and now he’s coming home! The most charming, heart-warming, and laugh-out-loud-funny one-woman-shows you’ll ever see.

"The most theatrically pure show I have ever seen. A stunning performance." ~CBC

"'I never did nothin’ special,’ grunts Jake during an overdue visit to his brother’s grave. Mackey’s gift of remembrance is a powerful rebuttal. Don’t miss it." ~Winnipeg Free Press

Best Drama, Best Solo Show, Best Female Performer. ~Victoria Fringe

Best of Fest: ~Edmonton Fringe Festival, Winnipeg Fringe Festival

April 6-16 at Pacific Theatre
