UMKC Theatre Presents: Burnt by the Sun

By , April 30, 2013 8:11 am

Burnt by the Sun starts out like a lyrical masterpiece by Chekhov and then is hit by violence so sudden and so shocking that, to us, it echoes of 9/11/.   The Russian/French movie, which won an Oscar for Best Foreign Film, is brilliantly adapted for the stage by Peter Flannery.

“Already a classic,” declared the enchanted critics when it premiered at the Royal National Theatre in London.  Beautiful, full of wonderful characters, funny and deeply moving, Burnt by the Sun is not to be missed.

Opens on May 3rd and runs through May 12th in Studio 116, Olson Performing Arts Center.
