Sam Shepard's Pulitzer Prize-winning play Buried Child returns 20 years after its last major New York production, with this revival by The New Group in association with Lisa Maitlin, directed by Scott Elliott.

Mr. Shepard, who recently passed away, was one of the most important and influential writers of his generation.

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. 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.

This is a thoughtful presentation that’s absorbing enough to remind us of why it’s always worth revisiting Mr. Shepard’s haunting play. Buried Child is as effective a portrait as exists of the profound ambivalence with which we all regard where we come from. 

The New York Times says, “Thoughtful and absorbing. Ed Harris is splendid” and Associated Press proclaims, “A wild ride of a harrowing revival.  Ed Harris is engrossing to watch and Amy Madigan is perfection.” (Runtime 1 hr, 50 min).
