The Giver

May 23, 2023
Harold Prince Theatre
PLA Presents

Children's Festival


“Giver what causes you pain? If you gave some of it to me, maybe your pain would be less.” A young boy from a seemingly utopian, futuristic world is singled out to receive life-altering training from The Giver, who alone holds the memories of the true joys and pain of life. Told with deceptive simplicity, Lois Lowry’s Newbery Award-winning classic, The Giver, comes alive onstage exploring a profound journey and reflection on humanity. 

Adapted by Elise Thoron. Performed by Aurea Tomeski.
