BURIED CHILD (play)
A middle American farming family in 1979. Already struggling with debt
and two wayward sons, a grandson arrives... what is being concealed?
Sam Shepard play, Ed Harris stars.
Not available. Professional reviewers agree that Ed Harris and wife make an
interesting West End debut as senior couple Dodge and Halie, farmers in Illinois
with 3 living adult sons and a buried one of the title. The arrival of the
grandson is the catalyst of the play, and we find out why the "buried child" has
blighted family life. Alliances wax and wane over three episodes (two short
intervals), and most reviewers agree that the build up to the ending is more
satisfying than the final destination.
Still, there's plenty to enjoy in the performances - Charlotte Hope getting
several mentions as the new daughter-in-law - and set, even if some found the
pace too slow and detailed for the subject matter. More snap required, was the
diagnosis of some. It is compelling but never actually as emotionally involving
as it might have been, seems to be the verdict.
