"Thoughtful and absorbing. Ed Harris is splendid. Mr. Elliott's production wants us to listen to Mr. Shepard's characters as if they truly were members of our own family, so that (just like our own family) they can sucker-punch us when we feel most unguarded."
- Ben Brantley, The New York Times
Sam Shepard's Pulitzer Prize-winning play Buried Child returns 20 years after its last major New York production in this special HD screening. 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. 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.
Starring: Taissa Farmiga, Ed Harris, Amy Madigan, Larry Pine, Rich Sommer, Paul Sparks, Nat Wolff
"A wild ride of a harrowing revival. Ed Harris is engrossing to watch and Amy Madigan is perfection."
- Jennifer Farrar, Associated Press
"A riveting revival that captures the symbolism and rich poetic imagery that makes Shepard so unique. This is vintage Shepard in the hands of masters."
- Wilborn Hampton, The Huffington Post
"Vivid and visceral. A gritty, mysterious, and engrossing portrait of domestic life gone to hell."
- Matt Windman, AM New York
