Buried Child

Five-time Golden Globe winner Ed Harris (The Truman Show, Pollock) makes his West End debut in Pulitzer Prize-winning play Buried Child.
Husband and wife Dodge (Harris) and Halie are struggling to hold on to their farmland when their grandson Vince arrives. Apparently unrecognisable to his family, Vince navigates a domestic life that is coming apart at the seams as his relatives gingerly edge around a long-held secret.
Gritty, captivating and dazzlingly funny, Sam Shepard’s (True West, Bloodline) Buried Child takes a dark look at the disenfranchised America of 1979 as recession and political discord take hold. Almost forty years after its first performance, the parallels with our own time are clear and our delusions about our family lives as tenacious as ever.
This highly-anticipated transfer of the critically-acclaimed Broadway production also stars fellow Golden Globe winner Amy Madigan (Gone Baby Gone, Field of Dreams) as Halie and features the creative team behind the sell-out Broadway transfer of Jesse Eisenberg’s The Spoils.
A classic domestic drama that invokes the Gothic, the mythic and the macabre, Buried Child is an American masterpiece that is rarely seen on the London stage. Playing at the Trafalgar Studios for a limited time, book your tickets today!

  • Thought-provoking and beautifully acted drama

    29 December 2016

    Divided into three acts (and two intervals) this play was a slow burner, which started off slowly and built to a jaw-dropping crescendo. Excellent acting all round including very strong performances from the two leads. The theme of the American dream gone wrong is one we see in many dramas, but this one was reinforced by its powerful imagery and carefully placed words which left you with a lot to mull over at the end. Recommended.

    " [Ed Harris] he's captivating; the sort of contained cinematic performance that pulls an audience in close."

    What's On Stage

    "Atmospheric and meticulously performed revival of Sam Shepard’s strange American fable"

    The Stage

  • 1 December 2016

    "Buried child speaks to all of our fears, our despairs, our grief. Amongst an excellent cast, Ed Harris’ performance stands out as American Theatre’s King Lear, and Amy Madigan gives a chilling performance that will haunt theatre for a generation."
