Project Description:

SYNOPSIS: Sam Shepard’s Pulitzer Prize-winning Buried Child takes place somewhere in Illinois in a squalid farm home occupied by a family filled with suppressed violence and an unease born of deep-seated unhappiness. The characters are a ranting alcoholic grandfather; a sanctimonious grandmother who goes on drinking bouts with the local minister; and their sons, Tilden, an All-American footballer now a hulking semi-idiot; and Bradley, who has lost one leg to a chain saw. Into their midst comes Vince, a grandson none of them recognizes or remembers, and his girlfriend, Shelly, who cannot comprehend the madness to which she is suddenly introduced. The family harbors a dark secret which Tilden unearths and this act purges the family, at last, of its infamy and suggests the perhaps slim possibility of a new beginning under Vince, whose estrangement from the others has spared him the taint of their sin.

Description of Role(s) Available (age, gender, body type, ethnicity, etc.):

Women:

HALIE (50-69) is Dodge’s wife, who is in her sixties. Halie attempts to ignore the bleak circumstances around her by indulging in a mix of nostalgia, religion, and extra-marital sex. She worships the somewhat fictionalized memory of her third son, Ansel, who died in rather mysterious and odd circumstances. In addition, she attempts to cover up the fact she had a baby with her eldest son Tilden.

 

SHELLY (20-25) is Vince’s girlfriend, a young woman in her early twenties. At first she looks forward to meeting Vince’s family, as she imagines them to be quaint and romantic country folk. She is then spooked by the reality of the family’s strangeness, and when Vince abandons her, Shelly begins to try to uncover the family’s secret.

 

Men:

DODGE (50-70+) is a farmer now in his seventies. Dodge is the central character and sickly patriarch of the family. His once-prosperous farm is now barren and rundown, and he is an alcoholic invalid who tries to hide his drinking from his wife. He acts ornery and hostile to his family and seems disappointed with all his children. Dodge is in the last days of his life, and as he nears his end, he gradually begins to open up and reveal the secret that has been plaguing the family for decades.

 

TILDEN (30-49) A man in his forties, Tilden is the eldest son of Dodge and Halie. He was a former all-American football player, but is now “burned out,” “profoundly displaced,” and seems to be mentally ill in some way. He is living at the family home after running into some sort of mysterious trouble in New Mexico, where he had gone to seek a life away from his family.

 

BRADLEY (30-40) is the other son of Dodge and Halie, and about five years younger than Tilden. Bradley is an amputee with a wooden leg—he supposedly cut his leg off with a chainsaw by accident. He is an aggressive bully toward his father, his older brother, and Vince’s girlfriend Shelly.

 

VINCE (20-25) is a young man in his early twenties, and Tilden’s son by an unknown mother. Vince and his girlfriend, Shelly, stop by the farm unannounced, as Vince is apparently looking to reconnect with Tilden. When his grandfather and father don’t recognize him, however, Vince becomes disturbed and abandons Shelly at the house for a night.

 

FATHER DEWIS (50-69) is a protestant minister in his sixties. Hallie speaks highly of him in act one, but when we meet him in act three, he is drunk, ineffectual, and lecherous. It’s implied that he’s having an affair with Halie, and there is a suggestion that the faults of his character suggest faults with religion more generally.
