Buried Child, with Actor in Speaking Debut, Opens Oct. 5

Buried Child, the 1979 Pulitzer Prize-winning play by Sam Shepard (Fool for Love, True West),  will return to New York for an Off-Off-Broadway run.  Presented by Nicu's Spoon and directed by S. Barton-Farcas, the show will play for three weeks at The Access Theater (380 Broadway, 4th Floor below Canal at White St.). Performances begin Wednesday, October 4th and continue through Sunday, October 22nd. Opening night is Thursday, October 5th.

"The award-winning Nicu's Spoon, known for turning expectations and stereotypes on their head, re-envisions this classic and shakes it up in new ways. If you think you know the story of Buried Child, think again…Starkly poetic, humorous, and mysterious, Buried Child is a vision of a dysfunctional family transformed into a symbol of America's loss of innocence.  Cast with a multi-racial and multi-abled roster of artists, this upcoming production shows a true reflection of America," according to production notes.
 
The production will star Wynne Anders ("One Life to Live") as Halie, Wendy Clifford as Shelley, Erwin Falcon as Vince, David Marantz (George Orwell's 1984) as Bradley, Alvaro Sena (Off-Broadway's Cherish) as Father Dewis, Jim Williams (Thomas Jefferson with Glenn Close) as Dodge and, making his onstage speaking debut,  Darren Fudenske (member of New York Deaf Theater) as Tilden.
 
The show will play the following schedule through Sunday, October 22nd: Wednesday-Sunday at 8pm; October 8th and October 15th performances will be interpreted with American Sign Language.  Tickets are $14-$18 and are now available online at www.smarttix.com or 212-868-4444 by calling.
 
The Access Theater is located at 380 Broadway, 4th Floor (below Broadway and Canal at White St.).  Call 646-299-5345 for any special access needs.
