Description

For the first time, the multi award winning international star Ed Harris will appear on the West End stage in the critically acclaimed Broadway production of Sam Shepard’s Pulitzer Prize-winning play, Buried Child.

Set in 1979 rural America as it reels from a recession and political unrest, the similarities between then and now are compelling in the run up to the American Presidential Election. Casting a brutal light on disenfranchised Americans, Buried Child is a dark, macabre and painfully funny family drama that is as relevant now as it was during its first run almost 40 years ago.

Dodge (Harris) and Halie (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.
