Set in 1979 rural America, BURIED CHILD is a dark, macabre and painfully funny family drama. Dodge (Harris) and Halie (Madigan) are barely hanging on to their farmland and their sanity while looking after their two wayward grown sons. This wildly poetic and cuttingly funny take on the American family drama gleefully pulls apart the threadbare deluded visions of our families and homes.
Ed Harris is a five time Oscar Nominee and Golden Globe winner. Harris’s film credits include; Apollo 13, The Truman Show, The Hours and Pollock. He also won a Golden Globe Award for playing Senator John McCain in Game Change. Joining Harris are Jeremy Irvine (Steven Spielberg’s War Horse & The Railway Man) and Golden Globe winner Amy Madigan.

“An American gothic masterwork. It is to the American theatre what Harold Pinter’s The Homecoming is to the British stage, the classic domestic drama”
New York Times
“Shepard leaves no doubt that you are in the hands of a master-dramatist, capable of combining the naturalistic and the mythic, with rare panache.”
