ABOUT THE SHOW:
Buried Child, the powerfully mysterious play that won Sam Shepard a 1979 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, is a darkly comic meditation on the theme of "You can't go home again." The story begins when 20-something Vince decides to bring his girlfriend back to his family's decaying farm. A sweet idea, but there's a hitch: No one "back home" — neither his folks nor his grandparents — seems to remember him. Eviscerating Rockwell-ian notions of American rural life, the play oozes with a spookiness that takes a long while to shake off. This play, which launched Shepard, also a successful film actor, to fame as one of America's preeminent playwrights, is a bona fide classic — it masterfully conveys the mystical, cannibalistic pull of family ties even as they unravel.
Not recommended for children.
