Jesse Eisenberg writes Holocaust-themed play


Jesse Eisenberg, who portrayed Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg in “The Social Network” and is now starring in Woody Allen’s “To Rome With Love,” has written a play revolving around the Holocaust.

The play, called “The Revisionist,” will open at New York’s Cherry Lane Theatre, off-Broadway, in 2013, according to the Times of Israel. Eisenberg has not indicated whether he will appear in the play, though he appeared in his play “Asuncion,” which also ran off-Broadway last year.

“The Revisionist” will be about a science-fiction writer who travels to Poland and meets with a relative of his who survived the Holocaust and has a secret.
