About the Event

Directed by James Coleman Cast- Joe Ferris, Christian Brammer, Shelby Klemann, Scott Renderer, Dylan Duffy, Stephan Longmire, Mary- Nell Bockman Buried  Child won the 1979 Pulitzer Prize for Drama and launched Shepard to  national fame as a playwrite. The play depicts the fragmentation of the  American nuclear family in a context of disappointment and  disillusionment with American mythology and the American Dream, the  1970s rural economic slowdown, and the breakdown of traditional family  structures and values. In 1979, Shepard also won the Obie award for  Playwriting. The Broadway production in 1996 was nominated for five Tony  Awards, including Best Play.
