Seven Spots on the Sun

By Martín Zimmerman

Thompson Shelterhouse | Sept. 28 - Oct. 27, 2013

A world premiere fable of revenge and redemption. The citizens of a Latin American village, still reeling from the effects of a brutal civil war, find themselves facing an even more devastating foe: a plague that threatens the most vulnerable among them. A reclusive doctor discovers he has a magical capacity for healing, but it’s his own soul he must mend when he’s faced with a life or death decision. Will he choose a path of compassion or retribution?

Advisory: Seven Spots on the Sun is appropriate for adults and older teenage audiences only. It includes strong adult language and mature themes in its onstage depiction of the ravaging effects of war. Please contact the Box Office if you have questions or require additional information.

Running Time: The show runs approximately 85 minutes with no intermission.
