    Buried Child

    Presented by at The City Theatre

    February 4 - February 21, 2010


    Buried Child

    Something has been unearthed…Sam Shepard’s Pulitzer Prize winning quintessential drama that digs deep into family dysfunction and the deterioration of the American dream. In the corn fields of Illinois, a squalid farm home is occupied by a family filled with suffering born of deep-seated unhappiness and violence. When a stranger returns, his persistent search for understanding and truth unearths a deep, dark, secret.

      A chilling depiction of a heart broken and lost family. Incredible performances that are both haunting and delightful. One of City Theatre's best productions. Don't miss it.

      Buried Child by S Shepard at City: dark, grotesque but comic cartoon of epic rural despair. Kudos: Wray Crawford.
