New England Premier!
by Jesse Eisenberg
Directed by Sasha Brätt
The Off-Broadway hit play by Jesse Eisenberg, star of The Social Network and frequent contributor to The New Yorker.
In this comedic drama, a young science fiction writer named David journeys to Poland to stay with his 75-year-old second cousin, Maria, a widowed Holocaust survivor. While David is searching for a quiet space to unblock his creative energy so he can revise his novel, the lonely Maria is thrilled for the chance to connect. As their bond grows, David learns a profound secret about Maria's past that challenges their relationship and teaches them both about the meaning of being a family.
WARNING: The Revisionist contains adult themes and language that might be inappropriate and/or uninteresting for children. The production may be a good choice for older, mature teens.
"A quirky and…heartbreaking meditation on the meaning of family, both across the generations and across the globe" - Associated Press
"'The Revisionist' is about a Polish survivor of the Holocaust, who holds a guilty secret close to her chest and a naive young American writer who can't see the secret for the woman." - New York Times
