Jake's Gift

Celebrating its 10th anniversary in 2017, Jake’s Gift has been performed in over 200 communities across Canada and overseas. This powerful, award-winning Canadian play follows a Second World War veteran who reluctantly returns to Normandy, France to commemorate the D-Day landings. There, he meets a young girl who challenges him to confront long-ignored ghosts – most notably, the war-time death of his elder brother.

Full of poignancy and surprising humour, at its heart, Jake’s Gift is a story about the legacy of remembrance. This touching performance personalizes the story behind one soldier’s grave.
