A dark, touching and funny modern fable inspired by the story from Genesis, a Hollywood producer decides to end it all on his favorite Malibu beach when he is interrupted by an unearthly stranger.

Reviews

At thirty minutes with one location, Jake and the Angel has all the best aspects of Fringe: it's short, sweet, thought-provoking, with great performances, lighting, and direction.

A pure delight - a funny, moving debate on life's meaning, beautifully acted and directed, with just the right amount of bitter humor to keep us going. Simple, unpretentious, and smart. Too rare a combination.

I saw the show last night and loved it. The two actors are really connected, and the writing is brilliant. I'll probably catch it one more time to see where the actors take it from here. I definitely recommend this show!

David Caprita's (Jake) 30 minute, one-act is a totally absorbing and compelling trip to a Malibu beach where Jake wrestles with his guardian Angel (Josh Wingate) who is not about to allow Jake to complete the task he set out to do. Neither is willing to give an inch. David's beautifully crafted dialogue is well staged and directed by Matt Duggan. Quintessentially all that represents Fringe. This play is a MUST SEE!
