Join Us – Niles West Theatre Presents “A Kid Like Jake”

Join us for a contemporary play that deals with themes of belonging, loss, love, and what it means to be a family. Set in modern day Brooklyn, A Kid Like Jake centers on a young couple and their four year old son Jake. Jake is a young boy who does not subscribe to gender norms, loves princesses, and plays dress up. Beloved and accepted for who he is by both of his parents, they wonder whether to “play the gender card” when applying to private elementary school programs. In conversations with each other and Jake’s preschool director the couple struggle with how to move forward with their applications and parenting styles as Jake’s behavior becomes increasingly erratic and concerning to those in his life. Join us for this moving piece that asks the question, what does unconditional love really look like?
Performances will be held:
Thursday, Sep 1: 10am (Free Community Performance) & 4pm
Friday, Sep 2: 5pm
Saturday, Sep 3: 2pm & 6pm
