Ed Harris leads the finest ensemble cast on the West End stage in the universally acclaimed and completely unmissable Pulitzer Prize-winning ‘masterwork’ (New York Times), Buried Child by Sam Shepard.
Described as ‘Harold Pinter meets Eugene O’Neill - a great family drama with a bitumen black heart’ (Whatsonstage) and ‘wickedly funny, full of rich black humour’ (London Theatre), Buried Child is set in rural America as it reels from a recession and political unrest. The similarities between then and now are strikingly compelling with the Financial Times stating, ‘Sam Shepard’s ripe slice of American gothic with its deeply dysfunctional family symbolic of a divided and disillusioned America’.
The superlative cast includes Golden Globe winner and Emmy-nominated Amy Madigan ‘Frighteningly realistic as a woman who has no idea that she is drowning not waving’ (The Times). Making their West End debuts are ‘impressive’ (Financial Times) Jeremy Irvine (Steven Spielberg’s War Horse, The Railway Man, Now is Good and forthcoming films Fallen, Billionaire Boys Club, and This Beautiful Fantastic) and Charlotte Hope (Game of Thrones, Allied) who is a ‘revelation’ (Metro).
All the creatives involved with Buried Child have performed an amazing feat and offered us a precious gift. This is not a revival of a play written in 1978, and first performed on Broadway in 1996. This is the introduction of a seminal work to be revisited and reseeded for generations of actors and theatre-goers to come.
