About the Show

Running November 10th through November 25th

In his 1979 Pulitzer Prize-winning surreal, dark comedy, “Buried Child”, Sam Shepard takes a macabre look at one American Midwestern family with a very dark secret. When Vince brings his girlfriend, Shelly, home to meet his family, she is at first charmed by the “normal” looking farm house which she compares to a “Norman Rockwell cover or something”–that’s before she actually meets his crazy family–his ranting, alcoholic grandparents, Dodge and Halie, and their two sons: Tilden, a hulking semi-idiot, and Bradley, who has lost one leg to a chain saw. Strangely, no one seems to remember Vince at first, and they treat him as an intruder. Eventually, however, they seem to accept him as a part of their violently dysfunctional family.

Join us for this incredibly powerful Eastline production of this remarkable work.
