As the play unfolds, The Giver
explains how Humanity’s Child, having grown up
in a loving and protective family, surrounded by “older-wiser” cousins,
has only just begun to be aware of the world around her;
a world of dissonance, discord, and danger.
And how she encounters her fears and anxieties about the future,
struggling to make sense in a terror-filled world.
The Giver, with a lot of musical help from Humanity’s Cousins, offers support and guidance as they
encourage Humanity’s Child to participate joyfully in life; to connect with others; and, to speak with a common voice for what she knows is right.
