Event Description

Ironweed Productions, in a co-production with the Santa Fe Playhouse, returns to the volatile, high-octane, and wickedly funny landscapes of Sam Shepard and presents his Pulitzer Prize-winning play BURIED CHILD, running March 28th - April 14th, 2013 at the Santa Fe Playhouse. 

The production will be directed by Mona Malec, who directed last season’s acclaimed benefit production of The Guys by Anne Nelson, a project commemorating the 10th anniversary of 9/11. BURIED CHILD features Larry Glaister, Kat Sawyer, Pierre Barrera, Scott Harrison, Matt Sanford, Kate Kita, and Elias Gallegos. It also features the production design of Chadney Everett, Skip Rapoport, Emilee McVey and Dan Piburn. 

In this riveting drama, Sam Shepard busts down the door of a once well-established family home in the heart of America to expose what lies behind the peeling paint and faded curtains. Dodge, his wife Halie, and their two sons: Tilden, recently kicked out of New Mexico, and Bradley, survivor of a crippling accident, live isolated lives, clinging desperately to their own versions of a fractured past. But the return of Vince, the grandson no one seems to recognize, and his girlfriend Shelly, who hopes for a glimpse of the Norman Rockwell life she never had, sets the family on a wild carnival ride full of betrayal, denial and searing accusations. By turns poignant, unsettling and hysterical, BURIED CHILD promises an unforgettable journey into a haunted world that will keep audiences talking long after the lights go down.
