october 6 | jake's gift | julia mackey | dirk van stralen

Jake's Gift (born at Pacific Theatre in 2002) is coming to Vancouver again for one night only! Last seen at PT in our 2010/2011 season, this is a great chance to see Julia Mackey's award-wining show, directed and stage managed by Dirk Van Stralen, who has also graced the PT stage in CARIBOO MAGI and THE WOODSMAN!

October 6th
Tickets $15 • Call 604.713.1800 and press 1

Jake's Gift is a surprisingly funny multi award winning drama about a WW2 veteran's reluctant return to Juno Beach to find the grave of the brother who never came home. While wandering the shores of Juno Beach, Jake encounters Isabelle, a precocious 10-year-old from the local village. Her inquisitive nature and charm challenge the old soldier to confront some long ignored ghosts. Most notably, the war-time death of his eldest brother, a once promising young musician.

At its heart, Jake's Gift is about the legacy of remembrance and makes personal the story behind one soldier's grave.
