CURSE OF THE STARVING CLASS

By Sam Shepard
Directed by Lane Savadove

1978 Obie Award Winner for Best New American Play

March 25 - April 12

The Tates are on the brink of emotional and financial ruin...

 

...as each family member plans a desperate escape. Ella plots with a smarmy real estate agent, while husband Weston holes up at the local bar, and son Wesley tries desperately to hold the house together. Meanwhile, 13-year-old Emma dreams of a life of crime, and the family’s lamb takes the brunt of it all.  Winner of the 1978 Obie Award for Best New American Play, Curse of the Starving Class takes the American Dream and explodes it into gruesome fragments.

 

Venue: Latvian Society Theater, 531 N. 7th Street (7th & Spring Garden)
