Age Advice: 6+

Jake & Cake is a play written for Theatre Centre by Godfrey Hamilton. It toured to audiences aged 6+ in primary schools during 2009 and 2010.

Jake has moved to the country. Missing his best friend Raymond, he wishes to be back in London. One day, a local girl called Cake tumbles into his life with stories of strange magic and ancient myths. As storm clouds gather, they move into the woods in search of friendship and the winding path home. 

“If you’re lost in the woods and fall asleep in the circle of magic stones, a great grey wolf will bring you the dreams you need to dream.”
