Jesse Eisenberg, known for his roles in The Social Network, Adventureland, and The Squid and the Whale, has written in his second play, The Revisionist, a stunning exploration of obsession, secrets, and the nature of family. Young writer David arrives in Poland with a crippling case of writer’s block and a desire to be left alone. His seventy-five-year-old second cousin Maria welcomes him with a fervent need to connect with her distant American family. As their relationship develops, she reveals details about her postwar past that test their ideas of what it means to be a family. The Revisionist had its world premiere at the Cherry Lane Theatre in New York in spring 2013, starring Jesse Eisenberg and Vanessa Redgrave and directed by Kip Fagan.
