A staged reading of the Obie Award-winning play by Sam Shepard.
Curse of the Starving Class is a darkly comic exploration of the American family psyche. The play focuses on the dysfunctional Tate family—the drunken father, burned-out mother, rebellious teenage daughter, and idealistic son—as they struggle for control of the rundown family farm in a futile search for freedom, security, and ultimately meaning in their lives.
