by Sam Shepard

Sam Shepard's Buried Child won a Pulitzer Prize and launched the career of one of the most important American playwrights of the last decades of the 20th century.  A darkly comic portrait of a family in disarray, Buried Child—haunting, disconcerting, and totally mesmerizing—explores how home is both a place you can never really leave or ever really return to.  Shepard's poetic characters and gothic imagination strip the layers of the American family bare, and take us on a searing journey into the heartland of both the country and of the "ties that bind."

Tickets are $15 for the General Public; $12 for Seniors (65+); $12 for UR staff, faculty & alumni;  and $8 for UR students.
