GPC Presents The Giver Thursday, Dec. 8 @ 7:00pm
Before The Hunger Games or Divergent, Lois Lowry’s The Giver challenged young readers with a dystopian future that eliminated color, memory or choice. In both Lowry’s novel and the play written by the acclaimed Eric Coble, 12-year-old Jonas lives in a futuristic society where everyone is equal. Only one man, the Giver, is allowed to remember the past. When Jonas is assigned to take on the Giver’s mantle, he learns the truth about his society—and the dark secrets that it keeps. How will Jonas react to his new knowledge?
Come see the talented actors of Loudoun County perform this show on December 8th at Franklin Park Arts Center, and witness the magic of a child discovering that life is about more than survival—it's about living!
