Everything Is Illuminated
September 11-October 6
Book-It Repertory Theatre
Jonathan treks to Ukraine to uncover the truth of a family legend—what happened to the woman who saved his grandfather from the Nazis? With the help of Alex, his less-than-fluent translator, and Alex’s grandfather, Jonathan’s journey leads him back in time and deep into his own imagination. The trio squabbles and struggles to understand each other and where they’re headed, but their quixotic search brings a vision of the past to vibrant, terrible, charming life before our eyes.
Book-It Repertory Theatre is a nonprofit organization dedicated to transforming great literature into great theatre through simple and sensitive production and to inspiring its audiences to read. Everything Is Illuminated is the first novel by the American writer Jonathan Safran Foer. The book’s writing and structure received critical acclaim for the manner in which it switches between two stories, both of which are autobiographical.
