"A Kid Like Jake" — Jan. 12 to 22, 2017

"A Kid Like Jake"
A drama by Daniel Pearle
Directed by Bob Belfance

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.

A Kid Like Jake was first presented by Lincoln Center Theater's LCT3 program, which fosters and produces works by new playwrights, directors and designers. The production premiered at Lincoln Center's Claire Tow Theatre in New York City on June 17, 2013.

A Kid Like Jake is presented through special arrangement with Dramatists Play Service. The videotaping or other video or audio recording of this production is strictly prohibited.
