Can the horror of war find healing in the desolation that follows? Or is the healing even more painful? In Seven Spots On The Sun, the doctor, the soldier, the young mother, and the town fight to find answers in the rubble of what was once their country. Martin Zimmerman’s passionate, mystical play of personal atonement exquisitely questions the boundaries between revenge and justice.

This production contains strong language, intense adult themes, use of weapons, and the sound of gunfire. Strobe lighting effects will be used.

Seven Spots On The Sun is presented by special arrangement with SAMUEL FRENCH, INC.
