The Giver, written by Lois Lowry, published in April 1993, was awarded the Newberry Award by the American Library Association for “the most distinguished contribution to American Literature” the previous year. Since its release, The Giver has sold more than 12 million copies and has been translated into 27 languages. The influential novel has impacted readers of all ages, with the New York Times in 1993 deeming it “powerful” and “sure to keep older children thinking and reading”. Eric Coble, an American playwright, adapted The Giver from a novel to a compelling theatrical experience that would captivate the audience. Since its premiere, The Giver has been staged by theatres worldwide in more than 250 productions. Currently, Cedarville University’s Theatre Production is putting on the play.
