Second Thought Theatre presents A Kid Like Jake
Second Thought Theatre brings its 2016 season to a close with the area premiere of A Kid Like Jake, by Daniel Pearle. Matthew Gray returns to Second Thought for the first time since the theater’s 2012 production of Pluck the Day to direct this play about a young couple struggling to do what is best for their gender fluid son.
All parents want the best for their children and that includes making sure they get a top-notch education. But what happens when a child doesn’t necessarily fit the mold of what’s expected at one of the most exclusive private schools in Manhattan? A Kid Like Jake follows two parents as they try to determine what’s best for their 4-year-old son, who happens to prefer Cinderella to G.I. Joe.
