Project Abstract/ Summary
Buried Child by Sam Shepard was first presented in 1978, and won the Pulitzer Prize for Drama. With this drama, Shepard made a name as one of America's premiere playwrights. Buried Child depicts the "fragmentation of the American nuclear family in a context of disappointment and disillusionment with American mythology and the American dream, the 1970s rural economic slowdown and the breakdown of traditional family structures and values."
