Sam Shepard's new play about a strange and violent homecoming. Read More >

Buried Child

It’s a curious homecoming for Vince, the son nobody seems to remember; particularly as his girlfriend can’t stop laughing at his apple-pie dream of a childhood house – until she steps inside that is, and meets the half-crazed relatives. Violence is never far from the surface in this claustrophobic domestic world, and the unexpected reunion triggers catastrophe.
