"Don't miss this acting tour de force!"
-- Bruce Mason, Gabriola Island, BC

"Jake's Gift is as near a perfect play as I've ever seen." 
-- Jackie Flanagan, Alberta Views Magazine 

Winner of the Best New Play, Best Solo Show, Best Drama and Best Female Performer at the 2007 & 2008 Victoria Fringe Festival, Jake's Gift comes to Gravenhurst November 14th for one night only.

Written & Performed by Julia Mackley and Directed by Dirk Van Dtralen, Jake's Gift is a moving story of a World War II veteran's reluctant return to Normandy, France for the 60th anniversary of the D-Day landings. While revisiting the shores of Juno Beach, Jake encounters Isabelle, a precocious 10-year-old from the local village whose inquisitve nature and charm challenge the old soldier to confront some long-ignored ghosts - most notably, the war-time death of his eldest brother. At its heart, Jake's Gift is about the legacy of remembrance and personalizes the story behind one soldier's grave.
