Ethics and the Theater: The Revisionist

Ethics and the Theater will present: The Revisionist by Jesse Eisenberg.

A young American writer arrives at his elderly cousin’s apartment in a small Polish city, purportedly to visit but actually to work on his second novel without distractions. Unfortunately, he counts his cousin’s efforts to entertain, feed, and otherwise connect with him as distractions. The result is a series of often hilarious, sometimes wrenching miscommunications and confrontations, in which each reveals past wounds and present yearnings.

Go at 6:30pm for a reception with light refreshments and after the reading participate in a discussion of the ethical issues of the play led by Betsy Ungar.
