Sam Shepard’s Pulitzer Prize-winning play Buried Child returns 20 years after its last major New York production. Directed by Scott Elliott, this production features Oscar nominees Ed Harris and Amy Madigan. Dodge (Harris) and Hallie (Madigan) are barely hanging on to their farmland and their sanity while looking after their two wayward grown sons. When their grandson Vince arrives with his girlfriend, no one seems to recognize him, and confusion abounds. As Vince tries to make sense of the chaos, the rest of the family dances around a deep, dark secret. This wildly poetic and cuttingly funny take on the American family drama gleefully pulls apart the threadbare deluded visions of our families and our homes.
