JACKIE and JACK: Jim Christy play opens in Toronto

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.
