Live Theater: “The Giver”
July 25, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Imagine a world without color, emotion, beauty or splendor. For Jonas, in Lois Lowry’s critically acclaimed Dystopian novel “The Giver,” this is reality. In “The Community,” Jonas’ people gave up memories of pain and pleasure, and chose instead to live in “sameness.” Dull and gray, no one asks questions; everyone obeys. To Jonas, everyone is exactly the same — until the fateful day he is chosen to be the next Receiver. As Jonas receives more pre-dystopian memories from the mysterious elder known as The Giver, he begins to realize that, while there is pain in the world, there is also beauty; to live without either is not truly to live. Gradually, he learns that with memory comes power–but when the life of someone he loves is put on the line, he questions his own. Could one boy really change the world? More hauntingly, should he?
