A dark satire by one of theatre's most respected and celebrated writers, Pulitzer Prize winner and Academy Award nominee Sam Shepard. Curse of the Starving Class is at once a hilarious, profound, frighteningly true, and delightfully surreal story that follows a malnourished and rather bizarre family searching for freedom, security, and their piece of the American pie. As their delusions of a better life fall apart around them, so does their farmhouse and the myth of America it embodies. Warning: Contains adult content, extreme behavior and brief nudity.

With: Amanda Berning, Ted Harmand, Brian Harwell, Tom Hinshaw, Merlin Huff, Meredith McMinn, Jeff Mills, Matt Tavianini and Tim Whitcomb.
