My name is Jake. I direct stageworks about context: where we are and who we are, and what they have to do with each other.
I direct things that are fun, and weird, and about the irreconcilabilities of being alive, but seriously, I promise, even the serious ones, they're fun. I think they have to be in order to sneak up on you.
