Signature Theatre has announced a one-week extension of its new production of Sam Shepard's Curse of the Starving Class, directed by Tony nominee Terry Kinney. Starting performances on April 23, it will now run through June 2 in the Irene Diamond Stage at the Pershing Square Signature Center.

Living a stagnant, unhappy existence in rural California, the struggling Tate family is desperate for change, but every family member has a different way of trying to improve their station in life. The drama was last produced by Signature more than 20 years ago and will now honor the memory of Shepard, who died in 2017.

The cast of Curse of the Starving Class includes Gilles Geary as Wesley, Maggie Siff as Ella, Lizzy DeClement as Emma, Flora Diaz as Sergeant Malcolm, Esau Pritchett as Ellis, Andy Rothenberg as Taylor, and David Warshofsky as Weston.

The creative team includes Julian Crouch (scenic design), Sarah J. Holden (costume design), Natasha Katz (lighting design), Rob Milburn and Michael Bodeen (sound design and original music), William Berloni (animals), and Peter Pucci (choreographer).
