Jake’s Gift by Julia Mackey
Running Sept 14 – Oct 1, 2017
This multi-award winning show is about a Canadian WW2 veteran’s reluctant return to Juno Beach for the 60th Anniversary of D-Day. When he arrives, he meets an impetuous little girl who forces him to confront those experiences, helping him to find peace through their time together. Funny and heartwarming this play perfectly typifies a time in our history that coincides well with our own sesquicentennial celebrations. Wells BC native Julia Mackey’s internationally renowned play is embarking on its 10th anniversary tour at Theatre NorthWest and is the perfect play to begin our season and their tour with. Productions will also be partnered with talk-backs from local veterans and performances in French are being made available.
