Terry Kinney directs the Sam Shepard play.
Signature Theatre opened its new production of Sam Shepard's Curse of the Starving Class, directed by Terry Kinney, on May 13. It is scheduled to run through June 2 in the Irene Diamond Stage at the Pershing Square Signature Center.

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, Andrew 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).
