May 11th, 2023Buried child: ‘one hell of a script’
The Mount Players’ second production for 2023 is Buried Child written by Sam Shepard. It was first presented in 1978 and won the 1979 Pulitzer Prize for drama, launching Shepard to national fame as a playwright.
The play is an intense drama set in an old farm house, in mid-century Illinois. A
macabre look at an American Midwestern family with a dark, terrible secret. Heavily
atmospheric and challenging, the play will entrance its audience with questions of
morality and its take on the disintegration of the American dream.
Although dark in many respects, it is delivered with humour and pathos. There
is hope however, as the final moments of the play suggest salvation with a surprise
With a superb cast, brilliant set and one hell of a script, the audience will be taken
on an emotional journey under the experienced eye of director, Robert Wallace. This
is The Mount Players’ 2023 Victorian Drama League entry.
The season runs from tomorrow, Friday, May 12 to Sunday, May 28 with just nine performances. Bookings: www.themountplayers.com or 5426 1892.
