Theater J

Jonathan Safran Foer’s
Everything is Illuminated
Adapted by Simon Block
Directed by Aaron Posner
Featuring Alex Alferov, Eric Hissom, Daven Ralston, Billy Finn, and Nancy Robinette

Based on the best-selling novel by Jonathan Safran Foer, this stunning and hilarious stage adaptation tells the story of a young man — also named Jonathan Safran Foer — who sets out to find the woman who might or might not have saved his grandfather. Accompanied by an old man haunted by memories of the war, an amorous dog named Sammy Davis, Jr. Jr., and a young Ukrainian translator who speaks in a sublimely butchered English, Jonathan takes a quixotic journey into an unexpected past, where reality collides with fiction in a heart-stopping scene of extraordinary power. A highly anticipated East Coast premiere.

“a powerful production not to be missed…I absolutely loved it.”—DC Metro Theater Arts
