Curse of the Starving Class
Hmm! Bacon! Yes, actual frying bacon on stage. Who could resist the enticing smell? Or the darkly comic, hauntingly mythic portrait of the American family in Curse of the Starving Class. Written by Pulitzer Prize winner Sam Shepard, Curse is at once poetic, violent, lyrical and outrageous. Set in California in the 1970s, the play surreally chronicles a farm family as they dream of a better life while dealing with an increasingly bizarre present life. Veering from everyday concerns (such as bacon!) to flights of theatrical invention, this curse never lets us forget the deeply conflicted yet seemingly inescapable ties of family.
