by Sam Shepard

A humorous yet disturbing portrait of a family
forgotten then discovered....


Tuesdays - Saturdays at 7.45pm
Sundays at 4.00pm

In this most bizarre of family reunions, a young man and his new girlfriend confront his eccentric relatives in an old farmhouse in rural Illinois. Increasingly strange events unfurl, leading towards the revelation of a dark secret that will change their lives forever. BURIED CHILD is by turns farcical and tragic in its compelling and moving representation of familial bonds.

***1979 Pulitzer Prize Winner***

“thrills, chills and comedy” ...The Daily Telegraph

BURIED CHILD, which catapulted Shepard into becoming
America's greatest living playwright, portrays a family that is
painfully funny, scary and familiar .

Seen at the National Theatre in 2004 and at Hampstead Theatre
in 1980, Ovation is excited to bring this award-winning play back
to the stage and introduce it to the fringe.
