Rattlestick Playwright Theatre's production of Jesse Eisenberg's new play The Revisionist begins performances February 15 at off-Broadway's Cherry Lane Theatre. Starring Eisenberg and Tony winner Vanessa Redgrave, the play opens on February 28 and will play a limited engagement through March 31.
Directed by Kip Fagan, The Revisionist tells the story of David (Eisenberg), who travels to Poland as he struggles with writer’s block. His 75-year-old cousin Maria (Redgrave) invites him to stay with him in hopes of connecting with her distant American family. As they bond, Maria reveals details about her difficult post-war life, testing what both cousins think it means to be a family.
The Revisionist features scenic design by John McDermott, costume design by Jessica Pabst, lighting design by Matt Frey, sound design by Bart Fasbender and property design by Andrew Diaz.
