Sam Shepard's Buried Child extends booking at Trafalgar Studios
The hit play extends booking to March 2017.
The New Group’s production of Sam Shepard’s Pulitzer & Obie prize-winning play, Buried Child has extended its booking period at the Trafalgar Studios to 4 March 2017. The production began performances on 14 November, 2016 before an official opening on 1 December and was previously booking to 18 February 2017.
Directed by Scott Elliott the production stars Ed Harris, Amy Madigan, Jeremy Irvine, Charlotte Hope, Jack Fortune, Barnaby Kay and Gary Shelford.
Buried Child opened to strong reviews; "it is finely textured and outstandingly delivered that you remain gripped" (London Theatre); "Harris impresses" (Guardian); "Harris devotees won’t be disappointed" (Telegraph).
"Dodge (Harris) and Halie (Madigan) are barely hanging on to their farmland and their sanity while looking after their two wayward grown sons. When their grandson Vince (Irvine) arrives with his girlfriend Shelly (Hope), 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."
Executive Producer Adam Speers of the announcement: “Both my co-producer Lisa Matlin, and I, feel privileged to have brought this production of Buried Child to the West End from New York, and are delighted that its now extending its run until early March. Sam Shepard’s Pulitzer prize-winning play is a masterpiece, and this is a once in a lifetime opportunity to see one of the finest actors of his generation, Ed Harris, on stage in London.”
Tickets for the extended booking period are now on sale.
