A world-wide hit returns to the place where it first premiered when the Oregon Children's Theatre re-stages The Giver
eight years after its auspicious debut. Based on the Newbery Award-winning children's novel by Lois Lowry (Number the Stars
), The Giver
is one of the most haunting dystopian tales ever written. Set in a world seemingly free of poverty, crime, sickness and unemployment, young Jonas enjoys a "perfect" childhood. When he turns 12, he is chosen for special training with The Giver, the keeper of memories for his community. During his training, Jonas soon discovers the tensions and terrors just underneath the surface of his idyllic world. Matthew B. Zrebski directs this OCT original and winner of the American Alliance for Theatre and Education (AATE) Distinguished Play Award.
