The Giver is Eric Coble's stage adaption of Lois Lowry's Newbery-Award-winning book. The world of The Giver is a utopia. There is no pain, but no joy either. The people are assigned their roles in society according to their talents, and men and women are assigned to each according to how well they Ĺ“balance. Each family is allowed one boy and one girl; when children turn twelve years old, they are assigned their roles in society. When Jonas turns twelve, he is assigned the special role of Receiver of Memories. He goes to work with the Giver, who keeps the memories of the world as it used to exist - memories of violence and fear, but also of joy and love. Together, Jonas and the Giver come up with a plan that will change their world forever.
