Horizon Stage is pleased to bring back this production to commemorate the 75th Anniversary of the Juno Beach campaign. Jake’s Gift is a multi-award winning one-actor play about a Canadian World War II veteran’s reluctant return to Juno Beach for the 60th Anniversary of D-Day. While revisiting the shores of Juno Beach, Jake encounters Isabelle, a precocious 10-year-old from the local village. Isabelle’s inquisitive nature and charm challenge the old soldier to confront some long-ignored ghosts – most notably the war-time death of his eldest brother, Chester, a once promising young musician. At its heart, Jake’s Gift is about the legacy of remembrance and makes personal the story behind one soldier’s grave.
Since 2007, Jake’s Gift has played at festivals and theatres in over 250
communities across Canada, including international stops to Washington
State, the UK, and Normandy, France, for the 70th, 73rd, and 75th
Anniversaries of D-Day, and sold out shows at Horizon Stage. 2019 marks
their 13th year of touring, and Juno Productions and Jake’s Gift
continue to garner awards and rave reviews whether playing in small
rural towns or big city centers.
Join us for a short Q&A with the actor following the performance.
