Jake’s Women, Valley Center Stage’s newest production, “Jake’s Women,” opens Friday, Feb. 2 at the North Bend community theater.

In this Neil Simon work, Jake is a novelist, who is more comfortable passively observing his life than he is living it. He takes refuge in his study, imagining conversations with the important women in his life: a snarky therapist; an abrasive sister; an adored but dead first wife; a daughter recalled as a child but now a young woman.

Jake is desperately seeking help from these women, hoping to save his marriage and ultimately himself, from himself As things go, he is often interrupted by real life with actual visits from these tenacious women who have some things to say.

Michael Murdock is the play’s director. He has previously been in the Valley Center Stage productions of “Caps for Sale,” “Superior Donuts,” “Night Must Fall” and “Greater Tuna.”

The show opens at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Feb. 2, and runs, Thursdays through Sundays, through Feb. 17. Doors open at 7 p.m. for the Thursday, Friday and Saturday performances and the show starts at 7:30 p.m. Doors open at 1:30 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 11, and the show starts at 2.
