Now playing through June 2 Only!
This new production of Curse of the Starving Class
, directed by Terry Kinney, honors Pulitzer Prize-winning Legacy playwright Sam Shepard, who passed away in 2017. Living a stagnant, unhappy existence in rural California, the struggling Tate family is desperate for change, but every family member has a different way of trying to improve their station in life. Last produced in NYC by Signature more than 20 years ago, Curse of the Starving Class
was called a play of “eloquent intensity, whirlwind farce and resonantly poignant insight” by Time Magazine
"A blistering revival! Superbly staged and acted."
- The Hollywood Reporter
"Beautiful, signature Shepard writing, in which primal desperation becomes fervid poetry."
- The New York Times
"A gruesome, gleeful demolition of the nuclear family and its fissionable discontents."
- The Observer
