A Midsummer Night's Dream

Seven Spots on the Sun

April 11 - 20, 2019

By Martin Zimmerman
Directed by John Cameron

David Thayer Theatre
UI Theatre Building, 200 N Riverside Dr, Iowa City, IA, 52242

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 is presented by special arrangement with Sauel French, Inc.
