About this show

The 1979 Pulitzer Prize winner for drama teaches the age-old lesson: You can't trust a man who keeps bringing in vegetables from out of nowhere. Dark and dysfunctional family comedy and tragedy, Sam Shepard's Buried Child deals with the lost ideal of the all-American family and the possibilities for hope in a society overwhelmed by its past. Shepard presents a family torn apart by long buried secrets, including an ornery grandfather, a religious yet flirtatious grandmother, and a long lost grandson desperate for recognition.
