“Not only are these inspiring presentations entertaining, they also do so much to spark a lifelong passion for reading in their audiences.” - Michael Bloomberg, Mayor of New York City

This piece features sixty minutes of solo-performance focusing on the relationship between the young Jonas and his mentor, The Giver. As Jonas trains to become the “Receiver of Memories,” the buried truth about the world that he was born into becomes hauntingly clear to both Jonas and the audience. Surrounded by a pre and post show interactive discussion, the students can explore several themes including individuality, ethics and social constructs.
