A KID LIKE JAKE - Mesa Encore Theatre - April 6 - April 22, 2018
by Daniel Pearle
On the eve of the admissions cycle for Manhattan’s most exclusive private schools, Alex and Greg have high hopes for their son Jake, a precocious four-year-old who happens to prefer Cinderella to G.I. Joe. But as the process continues, Jake’s behavior becomes erratic and perplexing, and other adults in his life start to wonder whether his fondness for dress-up might be cause for concern. The story of a husband and wife struggling to do right by their son, A KID LIKE JAKE is a study of intimacy and parenthood and the fantasies that accompany both.
Friday and Saturday at 7:30 PM
Sunday at 2:30 PM
Performances at the Mesa Encore Theatre Black Box, 933 E Main St, Mesa AZ 85203
