Stay Awake, Jake
by Tim Gilvin
A new one-man musical, charting the journey of Jake, who is driving through the night from London to Carlisle. Over the course of this intimate and intriguing song cycle, we gradually discover why. Stay Awake Jake is a musical in close-up, boldly and beautifully telling the story of guilt, of change, of hope and what it means to be a man in the modern day. This production marks its first full-length London run after a short run at The Vaults in 2016.
It won the 2014 S&S Award for New Musicals, the Origins Award for Best Original Work and 5 Broadway World UK nominations and has previously been performed by Norman Bowman and Jamie Muscato. Casting and further creatives are to be announced.
