National Players' The Giver


​​In a “utopian” future of sameness, young Jonas inherits an unusual career: to receive and keep the memories of his community’s past. Throughout lessons with his elder predecessor, The Giver teaches Jonas of love, war, and all of life’s unknown joys and pains. As his oppressive world continues unchanged, Jonas must decide whether to keep these secrets or upend his community. This modern classic explores the risks and rewards of a full life. The Giver speaks to all ages, and National Players is proud to produce it for the first time this year.
