Thirteen to Reair Ed Harris and Amy Madigan-Led Buried Child in Tribute to Sam Shepard
Shepard, the drama's author, died at the end of July.
In tribute to late playwright Sam Shepard, who died at the end of July, Thirteen's Theater Close-Up series will rebroadcast the New Group's 2016 off-Broadway revival of Buried Child on Friday, August 4, at 9pm in the New York metro area. The production is also available to stream online for those in metro area locations.
Directed by Scott Elliott, the production features Oscar and Tony Award nominee Ed Harris (Pollock) as Dodge, Golden Globe Award winner and Harris's spouse Amy Madigan (Field of Dreams) as Halie, Rich Sommer (Mad Men) and Paul Sparks (House of Cards) as their sons Bradley and Tilden, Nat Wolff (Paper Towns) as their grandson Vince, Taissa Farmiga (American Horror Story) as Vince's girlfriend Shelly, and Larry Pine (Casa Valentina) as Father Dewis.
The plot of Buried Child is described as follows: "Dodge and Halie are barely hanging on to their farmland and their sanity while looking after their two wayward grown sons Tilden and Bradley. When their grandson Vince arrives with his girlfriend Shelly, no one seems to recognize him, and confusion abounds. As Vince tries to make sense of the chaos, the rest of the family dances around a deep, dark secret. This wildly poetic and cuttingly funny take on the American family drama gleefully pulls apart the threadbare deluded visions of our families and our homes."
