THE SAM SHEPARD FESITVAL

Simpatico, Directed by Ann Bowen
Buried Child Directed by Tom Herman
A Lie of the Mind Directed by Dr. Kathy Curtiss

SIMPATICO is about the tough world of the racing fraternity, where Shepard examines guilt and restitution and the real hold of the past.

Winner of the 1979 Pulitzer Prize, BURIED CHILD is set in a squalid farm home occupied by a family filled with suppressed violence and an unease born of deep-seated unhappiness. The family harbors a dark secret. Years earlier, the grandfather had buried an unwanted newborn baby in an undisclosed spot, creating a cloud of guilt.

Winner of the New York Drama Critics Award as the best play, A LIE OF THE MIND tells the story of two families torn apart by a severe incident of spousal abuse. Exploring family dysfunction and the nature of love, the play follows Jake as he searches for meaning after his wife, Beth, struggles with brain damage.
