EgoPo comes full circle, remounting their 2020 show that was shut down days before opening.
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 13-year-old Emma dreams of a life of crime. Meanwhile, son Wesley tries desperately to hold the house together, and the family’s lamb takes the brunt of it all. Winner of the 1978 Obie Award for Best New American Play, Curse asks whether our family is our destiny or if we can alter our own futures.

About Sam Shepard
Sam Shepard (b.1943, d. 2017) was an American playwright, screenwriter, actor, and director.
Shepard's work transformed the American theater landscape by exploding bleak traditional realism into American surrealism, as seen in shows like Buried Child and Fool for Love, which EgoPo produced in our 2019-2020 Shepard Country Season.
