Jonathan Safran Foer's Everything is IlluminatedReturn

Playwright Simon Block Source Author Jonathan Safran Foer Source Title Everything is Illuminated Producer Aurora Theatre Company  [Website] Description Based on the best-selling, critically acclaimed novel by Jonathan Safran Foer, this stunning stage adaptation tells the story of a young Jewish-American writer (also named Jonathan Safran Foer) who sets out for Ukraine to find the woman who he believes saved his grandfather from the Nazis, and the town they wiped off the map. Jonathan’s tour guides are a pair of flamboyant Ukrainians, a grandfather and grandson with limited English skills and secrets of their own. As they travel into the unknown, along with the dog Sammy Davis Jr., Jr., they meet increasingly surreal characters, both fictional and real, as the past and present merge into an unforgettable journey.
