An OCT Original directed by Matthew B. Zrebski! Jonas’s world is perfect. Everything is under control. There is no war or fear or pain. There are no choices, individuality, or emotions—they are against the rules. When Jonas turns twelve he is selected to train with The Giver, who is the keeper of the entire Community’s memories, both good and bad. Now Jonas must shoulder the burden of memory and learn the harsh truths of what it means to live a life of sameness. Play runs through May 18, with performances Saturdays, 2:00 and 5:00 p.m.; Sundays. 2:00 p.m.; Sign Interpreted: Saturday, May 3rd, 2:00 p.m.
