Based on the Newbery Award-winning children's novel by Lois Lowry, The Giver is a haunting dystopian tale set in a world seemingly free of poverty, crime, sickness and unemployment. In this world of "Sameness," 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. Prime Stage Theatre brings a world premiere theatrical adaptation of this taught, provocative tale to Pittsburgh's New Hazlett Theater Center for Performing Arts.
