Rattlestick Playwright Theatre's production of Jesse Eisenberg's new play The Revisionist opens off-Broadway on February 28. Starring Eisenberg and Tony winner Vanessa Redgrave, the drama will play through March 31 at the Cherry Lane Theatre.
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 play also features Dan Oreskes.
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.
