Buried Child by Sam Shepard is a macabre look at an American Midwestern family with a dark, terrible secret. This play brought its author the Pulitzer Prize for Drama. Although dark in many respects, it is delivered with humour and pathos. Heavily atmospheric and challenging, the play will entrance its audience with questions of morality and it’s take on the disintegration of the American dream. There is hope however, as the final moments of the play suggest salvation with a surprise ending
