Sam Shepard’s CURSE OF THE STARVING CLASS

From the press release:

Set in the American Southwest in the late 1970s, dysfunctionality, alcoholism, and greed abound as the characters struggle for meaning and survival. The play testifies to Shepard’s profound insight into Capitalism’s contribution to the decimation of the middle class and the “American Dream.” The family consists of an alchoholic father, a disconnected mother, a daughter precocious beyond her years, and a deranged idealist son. This major award-winning work by Sam Shepard focuses on both the insane family dynamic and the havoc wrecked by the economic greed of bankers, mortgage lenders, and land grabbers. Whether they are ranting at the empty ice box, carrying lambs around the stage naked, sleeping on the kitchen table, shooting up bars on horseback, or having their cars blown to smithereens, this family will keep you laughing or shedding tears at their plight.
