Reviews
Review Quotes
'a brilliant playwriting achievement... a wonderful panoramic view of a family and its misfortune with an inexorable, gruesome dramatic tread'
'a cracker... starts out like something by Chekhov and ends up as a gripping Stalinist thriller... Funny, affecting and taut with suspense, Burnt by the Sun is a new play that already feels like a classic'

Based on the Oscar-winning film and set in Russia in 1936, 'Burnt by the Sun' shows the reality of daily life among the middle classes at the very beginning of Stalin's Great Terror. Even a decorated hero of the Russian Revolution and his family are not safe from the full, horrifying reach of Stalin's secret agents.
