General Admission/Individual

A Canadian WW2 veteran reluctantly returns to Normandy, France, for the 60th anniversary of the D-Day landings. While revisiting the beach he landed on sixty years earlier, Jake encounters Isabelle, a precocious 10-year-old from the local village whose 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.

In 2004 performer and playwright, Julia Mackey, traveled to Normandy, France, for the 60th anniversary of D-Day. While there, she interviewed dozens of WW2 veterans from Canada, Britain and America who had returned for the ceremonies. Their stories and the events that unfolded on her journey were the inspiration to create Jake’s Gift.
