Jake’s Gift – French Performance
A Journey to Juno Beach
Written and Performed by Julia Mackey
While revisiting the shores of Juno beach for the 60th Anniversary of the D-Day landings, World War II veteran Jake encounters Isabelle, a precocious 10-year-old from the local village. Her inquisitive nature and charm challenge the old soldier to make peace with his past.
A multi-award winning tour-de-force, Jake’s Gift uses the legacy of remembrance to make personal the story behind one soldier’s memories.
Recently, Jake’s Gift was translated to French so that Julia could perform it in Normandy during the 70th anniversary of the D-Day Landings. We are excited to offer our first ever French Performance.
