Buried Child

How far will a family go to keep their secrets buried? The Pulitzer Prize-winning drama that launched Shepard's career, Buried Child is a powerful and haunting expression of the crumbling myth of the American Family. Vince returns home to his family's farm, where his father fester over old wounds as Grandpa drinks himself to death to avoid Grandma. Strangely, no one recognizes Vince. Hardly the homecoming he expected, a history of hurt and betrayal begins to emerge as the family's darkest secrets become unearthed from the barren corn fields.
