Buried Child
Back for the second time, the One-Time Players are bringing Sam Shepard's award-winning play to Port Townsend.

This darkly comic play depicts a 1970s farm family in southern Illinois. At one time, long ago, this family had been living the American dream. But then things went wrong.

"Experiencing a Sam Shepard play is like having a dream," says David Hillman, who is directing the production. "As in a dream, everything is very specific, the characters, the places, the events, yet it feels heightened. Objects take on an increased significance. Memory is suspect. Waking logic is suspended. In Buried Child the dream is itself about a dream: the dream of family, and what a powerful and sometimes destructive hold that dream has on us."

The ensemble cast includes Lawrason Driscoll, Michelle Hensel, Peter Wiant, David Wayne Johnson, Katie Kowalski, Jason Noltemeier, and Scott Nollette.

The One-Time Players previously produced August: Osage County in the Port Townsend High School auditorium. This time we have chosen a more intimate venue: the Chameleon Theater, run by Joey Pipia. Here the audience will literally enter the farmhouse where the action takes place. You will be right up close to extremely talented actors performing an amazing play.

The Chameleon is home to Atomic Improv classes, acting workshops, and Port Townsend Children's Theater. It is located at 800 W. Park Avenue in the Port Townsend Business Park, just beyond the Department of Motor Vehicles.

The show runs about two hours, including two intermissions.

Tickets are $15. Seating is limited so buy tickets early. No one will be refused admission for inability to pay. For low-income reservations, questions, or to volunteer, call David Hillman at (360) 385-6207.
