Buried Child http://wfpl.org en REVIEW: The Bunbury's 'Buried Child' Delivers http://wfpl.org/post/review-bunburys-buried-child-delivers <p>A dark secret haunts a rural Illinois farmhouse where a once-proud family molders in disgrace in Sam Shepard’s Pulitzer Prize-winning play “Buried Child.” The play is sometimes described as a dark comedy, and its humor&nbsp;does serve to occasionally diffuse the almost stifling tension that pervades the play. But ultimately, “Buried Child” is a disorienting tragedy about the dissolution of the American family and the legacy of shame that causes one household to unravel and curl violently inward.</p> Mon, 18 Jun 2012 17:34:58 +0000 Erin Keane 685 at http://wfpl.org
