WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

The American Conservatory Theatre presents the 30th anniversary production of Sam Shepard's The Curse of the Starving Class, directed by Peter DuBois. The show's cast will feature Rod Gnapp, Dan Hiatt, Nicole Lowrance, Craig Marker, Pamela Reed, Howard Swain, T. Edward Webster, Jud Williford, and Jack Willis. Reed, who will now play Ella, portrayed Emma in the show's original 1978 production at the Public Theatre in New York. A dark satire by Pulitzer Prize winner and Academy Award nominee Sam Shepard, Curse of the Starving Class is at once hilarious and profound, frighteningly true, and delightfully surreal. It follows a malnourished and rather bizarre family searching for freedom, security, and their piece of the American pie. As their delusions of a better life fall apart around them, so does their farmhouse and the myth of America it embodies.
