Jonas' world is perfect. Everything is under control and safe. There is no war or fear or pain. There are also no choices; but when Jonas turns 12, he is chosen for special training from The Giver—to receive and keep the memories of the community, including memories of real pain and real joy. Now Jonas will learn the truth about life—and about the hypocrisy of his utopian world. Through this moving adaptation, discover what it means to grow up, to grow wise, and to take control of your own destiny. Presented by the Davis & Elkins College Division of Fine & Performing Arts.
