ABOUT THIS SHOW
A family’s survival in a harsh and changing world is put to the test in Sam Shepard’s Curse of the Starving Class. The setting is a farmhouse in the American West, inhabited by the Tate family, who has enough to eat but not enough to satisfy the other hungers that bedevil them. In the end the characters become a metaphor for the underside of American life—benighted innocents pursuing a dream that remains beyond their reach.
