LAKESIDE LITTLE THEATRE, in affiliation with BROADWAY HD, presents its HD screening of the live production
BURIED CHILD, by Sam Shepard.
Shepard’s Pulitzer Prize-winning play Buried Child returns 20 years after its last major New York production. In this highly acclaimed 3-act play, Shepard takes a macabre look at one American Midwestern Family with a very dark secret.
Dodge (Ed Harris) and Halie (Amy Madigan) are barely hanging on to their farmland and their sanity while looking after their two wayward grown sons (Rich Sommer and Paul Sparks). When their grandson Vince (Nat Wolff) arrives with his girlfriend (Taissa Farmiga), 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.
"What strikes the ear and eye is comic, occasionally hilarious behavior and speech at which one laughs while remaining slightly puzzled and dismayed (if not resentful), and perhaps indefinably saddened. Yet there is a swing to it all, a vagrant freedom, a tattered song. Something is coming to an end, yet on the other side of disaster there is hope. From the bottom there is nowhere to go but up." – Harold Clurman, The Nation, 1978
