Jake's Gift


Thursday, November 8 - Sunday, November 11 2018

Presentation House Theatre, North Vancouver BC

Described by playwright Julia Mackey as a “love letter of thanks to all our veterans”, Jake’s Gift is an award-winning Canadian play about one veteran’s reluctant return to Juno Beach.

Surprisingly funny, this multi-award-winning drama tells the story of a Canadian World War II veteran’s reluctant return to Normandy, France, to find the grave of the brother who never came home. While revisiting the shores of Juno Beach, Jake encounters Isabelle, a precocious 10-year-old from the local village. Isabelle’s inquisitive nature and charm challenge the old soldier to confront some long-ignored ghosts. At its heart, Jake’s Gift is about the legacy of remembrance makes personal the story behind one soldier’s grave.

Written & performed by Julia Mackey
Directed by Dirk Van Stralen
Lighting design by Gerald King

Mackey’s commitment to Canada’s veterans extends beyond the theatre. Since 2010, Juno Productions has sold button packages after each performance to raise money for the local Legion of the communities they perform in. To date, they have raised and donated over $49,000 to Legions and Poppy Trust Funds across Canada.
