A Chicago Premiere

Written by Wajdi Mouawad
Translated by Linda Gaboriau
Directed by Dale Heinen

Pierce Hall at The Historic Chicago Temple Building, 77 W. Washington St., Chicago

Inspired by classical Greek tragedy and the devastating effects of the Lebanese civil war, the internationally-renowned play Scorched was originally written in French by the acclaimed Lebanese French Canadian playwright Wajdi Mouawad.

Carried aloft by poetic language and evocative imagery, Scorched unfolds in a dreamlike atmosphere connecting the origins of one family in startling and unforgettable ways.  A brother and sister raised in Quebec must return to their mother's war-torn country to carry out her last wishes -finding the father and brother they never knew they had.
