About this show

The White Horse Theater Company presents Sam Shephard's Buried Child, directed by Cyndy A. Marion. Winner of the 1979 Pulitzer Prize, the play punctures the Norman Rockwell like exterior of American family life, revealing a disturbingly rotten core. Set in rural Illinois farm country, the play depicts a family poisoned by repressed desires, shattered relations, and a deeply suppressed secret. The arrival of two estranged relatives forces the family not only to face each other, but also the secret they have been hiding. Who is the child buried in the back yard? Why have they been hiding its death all these years?
