“I’m a veteran of the Second World War, and this play and its performance made a greater impact on me than all the memorial services I have ever attended.”
After incredible performances in 2022, this surprisingly funny, multi-award-winning drama returns to The Rose Studio II. This show has travelled across Canada, internationally, and been performed on Juno Beach three times as part of D-Day Anniversary events. “A jewel of a show you simply can’t afford to miss” (Calgary Sun), Jake’s Gift tells the story of a Canadian WW2 veteran’s reluctant return to Normandy, France, and being forced to confront some long-ignored ghosts. Join us in remembering those who have fought and continue to fight for our freedoms through this personalized story behind one solder’s grave.
