The giver


16 May 2022

Last Friday our Year 10 Drama students performed ‘The Giver’, a novel by Lois Lowry, adapted for the stage by Eric Coble.

In The Giver, society has taken away pain and strife and has minimised risk by converting to ‘sameness’, a plan that has eradicated emotional depth from their lives.

Josie is honoured with the position of ‘Receiver of Memory’ and stores all the past memories of the time before sameness, given to her by the Giver.

The play follows Josie and her struggles with concepts of all the new emotions and things introduced to her, whether inherently good, evil, or in between; and whether it is even possible to have one without the other.
