Show Description:

The Theatre Lab and Back Burner Productions are proud to present our upcoming collaborative production Jackie and Jack premiering at Unit 102 Studio Theatre, Friday February 22, 2013.

Written by the legendary Canadian polymath Jim Christy, Jackie and Jack is a ‘What If’ play that follows the meeting of two of North Americas’ most tragic figures. Jack Kerouac and Jackie Kennedy. The play is an examination of an encounter the two may have had on a beach in Hyanis, Northport - 1959, at a period of time when both of their lives are changing irrevocably.

Originally presented in workshop for the public in the spring of 2011 by director Guy Doucette (The Nightwood, Little War) of Back Burner Productions the play is returning to the stage with the collaboration of producer Michael Orlando (Theatre Lab, Collective Studio). Also returning to the stage to reprise her role as Jackie Kennedy, is actor Roselie Williamson (Into, Canadian Stage) and Katrina Carey as ‘Little Eddie’ (Little War, Back Burner Productions). New to the production is actor Jack Clift (Two Gentlemen of Verona, Rose Theatre) taking on the role of the King of the Beats, Jack Kerouac.
