World Premiere Adoption Story Based on True Events
The Sun Shines East
Written by Corrinne Chateau, Directed by Pat Golden, Produced by Mary Francina Golden


at The Marjorie S. Deane Little Theater
5 West 63rd Street
New York, NY 10023




Based on true events, The Sun Shines East is an adoption story set against the backdrop of political strife in the mid-1990s. After suffering a series of miscarriages, Christine, a New York actress, finds herself drawn “east” to The Republic of Georgia to adopt a baby. Her husband Robert, also an actor, a bit less enthusiastically goes along with the idea. Despite a chilly welcome from the staff of the children’s hospital there, the two parents-to-be immediately fall in love with a baby girl and make plans to bring her home. However, unbeknownst to them, the government of Georgia shuts down international adoptions. The couple find themselves in the middle of the political and personal fight of their lives, testing both their marriage and ultimately their courage.

Written and produced by adoptive mothers, The Sun Shines East is a moving personal journey, and an urgent call to action as orphan children continue to be used as pawns by politicians ruthlessly seeking political advantage. With moratoriums and increased restrictions on adoption in countries such as Russia, China, and Guatemala, this play reminds us what is at stake for millions of suffering infants, victims of bureaucracy and too young to speak for themselves.
