@THESPEEDOFJAKE

by: Jennifer Maisel
directed by: Jon Lawrence Rivera
"'Jake' also testifies to the power of diversity, as artists from many parts of the human family have shared in the process since its inception. Together, they’ve created something so true it’s painful — but necessary and, ultimately, healing." Theatre Ghost

A WORLD PREMIERE PLAY

Three years after the death of his son, Jake, Clark thinks he can use technology to contact him wherever it is death has taken him. This meditation on love, connection and disconnection in an increasingly distant time contemplates the universal desire to cheat death against the backdrop of our rapidly evolving technological world.
