The acclaimed 1994 film Burnt by the Sun is coming to life on the local stage with Stage Left Theater’s next production of its 2017-18 season, directed by Lorna Hamilton. Not exactly an uplifting theatrical romp (no spoilers), Burnt by the Sun is a darker tale set in 1936 that revolves around Stalin-led Soviet Union political motives, conspiracies, revenge, heartbreak and familial bonds. Things begin happily enough, as we’re introduced to main protagonist, senior Red Army officer Kotov, along with his beautiful wife and daughter, as they socialize with relatives one summer day. The relaxed joy of the gathering begins to sour when a man from Kotov’s wife’s past shows up, setting off the unraveling threads of a revenge-driven conspiracy that burns everyone it touches.
