    Sam Shepard's Buried Child is directed by Nancy Ridgeway with set design by T. Mark Cole & produced by Rob Rosiello.


    Buried Child takes a searing look at an American Family in all its glorious dysfunction. On an isolated Illinois farm, a family is lost in its secrets, unable to rise above its past. When the prodigal grandson returns unannounced with his spirited girlfriend, past & present collide with dark humor & brutal honesty -- characteristic of Sam Shepard, taking what is known about love & family, & turning it inside out.

    Buried Child won the 1979 Obie Award for Playwriting & the Pulitzer Prize for Drama.


    Cast includes: Charles Hoffmann as Father Dewis, Eric Rupp as Bradley, Kelsey Hébert as Shelly, Lee Stover as Vincent, Lorraine Barrett as Halie, Rob Rosiello as Tilden, & Tim Andersson as Dodge.

    Parking is free. Price is $20/adult; $10/student with valid ID. Call for group rate.
