Buried Child, the powerfully mysterious play that won Sam Shepard a 1979 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, is a darkly comic meditation on the theme of "You can't go home again." The story begins when 20-something Vince decides to bring his girlfriend back to his family's decaying farm. A sweet idea, but there's a hitch: No one "back home" -- neither his folks nor his grandparents -- seems to remember him. Eviscerating Rockwell-ian notions of American rural life, the play oozes with a spookiness that takes a long while to shake off. Buried Child is a bona fide classic masterfully conveying the mystical, cannibalistic pull of family ties even as they unravel. Learn More

Quotes & Highlights
“Hilariously intricate dialog very well executed by an exceptionally talented cast. Nothing to kvetch about in this production - go see it!” —performingartslive.com
“Steven Berkoff’s abrasive, but hilariously on-target look at people who kvetch their way through life is being given a skillfully sharp production by SeaGlass Theatre … kvetch is never easy to take — and a difficult one for the actors to pull off, but SeaGlass does it with sublime artistry, with laughs aplenty.” —BroadwayWorld.com
“The best show I’ve seen this year … I will see it again, and I urge anyone who values a living theater to do the same. … completely absorbing … extraordinarily funny … Berkoff and director Ian Vogt wield a handful of brutal devices to enhance dynamics already at work in this play, gears and wheels of love, honor, identity, faith, all whirling and pulling at one another until I expected to see arms and legs come off these actors’ bodies." -Stage Happenings
“A scaldingly funny masterpiece … sidesplitting, remarkably compelling … sensational … a comic touchdown." —LA Stage Times
