The Giver

Performance: May 29 - June 14, 2015
by special arrangement with Dramatic Publishing

"The Giver" is Eric Coble's stage adaption of Lois Lowry's Newbery-Award-winning book. Since it's release in the early 1990's, "The Giver" has been one of the most acclaimed---and controversial---children's books.  Like it's descendant "The Hunger Games", the Giver is set in a futuristic society.  Unlike "The Hunger Games", the Giver's Community has no violence.  Everyone has a mother, father and sibling, shares their feelings at regular meals, and is assigned appropriate job training upon reaching adolescence.  No one has to worry, ever. 


It's only when 12-year-old Jonas is given the prestigious role of the Receiver of Memories and begins training with the elderly Giver that Jonas sees what is wrong with the Community.  No one has to worry, but no one has a choice either.  Except for Jonas and the Giver, no one can see color, experience romantic feelings or possess any real empathy.  Soon, Jonas must make a choice:  continue with a safe but shallow existence or escape to the unknown, where he will forever be at risk of pain and suffering.Through this astonishing and moving adaptation, discover what it means to grow up, to grow wise, and to take control of your own destiny.
