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.
Written and performed by Julia Mackey.
Directed by Dirk Van Stralen

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 ]
