The Sam Shepard Festival in Broadway THE SAM SHEPARD FESTIVAL
Warehouse Theatre Columbus
8/31-9/22/2018
Warehouse Theatre will present The Sam Shepard Festival, a theatre repertory series honoring the American playwright Sam Shepard. The Festival will include fully staged productions of the Pulitzer Prize winning play Buried Child, the Tony Award winning play True West, and the semi-autobiographical play Cowboy Mouth, as well as readings on Curse of the Starving Class, Heartless, and Fool for Love. Shepard, one of the most important and influential writers of his generation, specialized in capturing the darker sides of American family life. His playwriting career, spanning half a decade, included 55 plays (his last, A Particle of Dread, had its premiere in 2014). The festival will run August 31 through September 22, 2018 at MadLab Theatre located downtown at 227 North Third Street. The Festival will kick off with 6 performances of True West (1980), running August 31-September 9, 2018. This American classic, about sons of a desert-dwelling alcoholic and a suburban wanderer who clash over a film script, explores alternatives that might spring from the demented terrain of the California landscape. The chaotic drama about sibling rivalry, stars Brandon Maldonado and Justin King who will play both of the battling brothers—Lee and Austin—jumping from the drifter brother at one performance to the screenwriting brother at the next, switching back and forth for the duration of the run. The production will be directed by Warehouse Theatre Artistic Director Kristofer Green. Next, the festival will offer 4 performances of the rarely produced, semi-autobiographical play Cowboy Mouth (1971) running September 6-16, 2018. The play, written with Patti Smith over the course of several sleepless days and nights, tells the story of Slim and Cavale, two rock n' rollers holed up in a disheveled apartment await a special delivery in the form of their iconic, visionary savior "the Lobster Man". The production will be directed by Michelle Steinhour. The final offering in the festival will be 8 performances of Shepard’s Pulitzer Prize winning Buried Child (1978) running September 13-22, 2018.. This powerful and brilliant play probes deep into the disintegration of the American Dream. The setting is a squalid farm home occupied by a family that is unhinged by a dark secret and filled with suppressed violence and an unease born of deep-seated unhappiness. The production will be directed by James Harper. The festival will also feature readings of Shepard’s Curse of the Starving Class (1978) on September 5, 2018; Heartless (2012) on September 9, 2018; and Fool for Love (1983) on September 19, 2018.
