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, the song Wesley tries desperately to hold the house together as the family's lamb takes the brunt of it all. Winner of the 1978 Obie Award for Best New American Play, "Curse" takes the American Dream and explodes it into gruesome fragments.
