Jeremy Irvine joins Sam Shepard’s Pulitzer Prize-winning play
It has been announced that Jeremy Irvine will join the cast of Sam Shepard’s Pulitzer Prize-winning play Buried Child at Trafalgar Studios alongside Ed Harris and Amy Madigan which runs from 14 November 2016 to 18 February 2017 with an official opening on 1 December 2016.
Buried Child follows Dodge (Harris) and Halie (Madigan) who are barely hanging on to their farmland and their sanity while looking after their two wayward grown sons. When their grandson Vince arrives with his girlfriend, no one seems to recognize him, and confusion abounds. As Vince tries to make sense of the chaos, the rest of the family dances around a deep, dark secret. This wildly poetic and cuttingly funny take on the American family drama gleefully pulls apart the threadbare deluded visions of our families and our homes.
Produced by The New Group the production is directed by Scott Elliott and originally premiered off-Broadway at The Pershing Square Signature Center in March 2016 where it was nominated for two Lucille Lortel Awards.
Buried Child originally premiered in San Francisco in 1978, winning the Pulitzer Prize for Drama in 1979, before transferring to Broadway in 1996.
British actor Jeremy Irvine shot to fame in the screen adaptation of War Horse , directed and co-produced by Steven Spielberg. His screen credits also include The Railway Man, A Night in Old Mexico, The World Made Straight, The Woman in Black: Angel of Death and Stonewall.
Tickets for Buried Child at the Trafalgar Studios are now on sale.
