BroadwayHD, an on-demand streaming service for theatrical productions, will stream a live presentation of the current New Group production of Buried Child by Sam Shepard tonight at 7:30 pm. The Pulitzer Prize-winning play is directed by Scott Elliott.

Audiences wishing to watch the streamed production can visit to reserve a pass for Buried Child. The event, which is the first in a series of upcoming BroadwayHD live streams, is also free with all annual subscriptions to BroadwayHD’s on-demand library.

Buried Child's cast features Oscar and Tony Award nominee Ed Harris (Pollock) as Dodge, Golden Globe Award winner and Harris' wife, Amy Madigan (Field of Dreams) as Halie, Rich Sommer (Mad Men) as Bradley, Paul Sparks (House of Cards) as Tilden, Nat Wolff (Paper Towns) as Vince, Taissa Farmiga (American Horror Story) as Shelly, and Larry Pine (Casa Valentina) as Father Dewis.

The play is being presented at the Pershing Square Signature Center 20 years after its last major New York production. The plot 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."
