ABOUT ABOUT

(From www.samshepard.com)
Sam Shepard's 1979 Pulitzer Prize winning BURIED CHILD takes a bizarre look at one American Midwestern family with a very dark secret.
When Vince brings his girlfriend, Shelly, home to meet his family, she is at first charmed by the "normal" looking farm house which she compares to a "Norman Rockwell” cover.  But that's before she actually meets his crazy family--his ranting, alcoholic grandparents (Dodge and Halie) and their two sons: Tilden, a hulking semi-idiot, and Bradley, who has lost one leg to a chain saw. Strangely, no one seems to remember Vince at first, and they treat him as an intruder.  Eventually, however, they seem to accept him as a part of their violently dysfunctional family.  The family lives under a cloud of guilt that stems from a dark secret that slowly emerges in the midst of chaotic, and, eventually, macabre family interaction.
