Jesse Eisenberg writes Holocaust-themed play

(JTA) — Actor Jesse Eisenberg 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, who portrayed Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg in “The Social Network” and is now starring in Woody Allen’s “To Rome With Love,” has not indicated whether he will appear in the play. 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 who survived the Holocaust and has a secret.
