Buried Child by Sam Shepard at Bas Bleu Theatre
Bas Bleu Theatre Company of Fort Collins is proud to announce the fourth mainstage production of its 30th Season, BURIED CHILD, by Sam Shepard.
Corn has begun to grow again at a remote farmhouse where the fields have been fallow for decades. A young man returns to his family home only to discover that no one recognizes him. And long-hidden secrets begin to come to light. Shockingly hilarious and darkly poetic, BURIED CHILD is the family reunion that no one anticipated. Winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Drama, the OBIE Award for Playwriting, and nominated for 5 Tony Awards, including Best Play, BURIED CHILD has long been considered Shepard’s masterpiece. The New York Times called it “a bonafide classic, filled with demonic energy, fierce throat-grabbing humor, and moments of lovely quiet lyricism.”

Performances begin on Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30 pm, and at 2:30 pm for the Sunday matinees. Friday, April 7this a pay-what-you-will/preview performance.
