The Revisionist - 2016 - Regional (US)

THE REVISIONIST, Eisenberg's second full-length play, is a dramatic exploration of obsession, secrets, and the complexities of family. Young author David travels to Poland to help overcome his crippling case of writer's block. Although seeking solace, his elderly second cousin Maria welcomes him with an overwhelming need to connect to her American relatives. As their relationship develops, she reveals details about her postwar past that test their ideas of what it means to be a family.
