Buried Child

The Pulitzer prize-winning play, Buried Child, is to extend its West End run until March 2017.

The drama will now run until Saturday 4th March at Trafalgar Studios in London.

Buried Child, written by American playwright, Sam Shepard, stars Ed Harris, famous for his performances in shows including Westworld, Pollock, The Hours and The Truman Show, as Dodge and Golden Globe winner Amy Madigan as Halie.

Jeremy Irvine (War Horse, The Railway Man), Charlotte Hope (Game of Thrones, Allied) and Jack Fortune (King Lear, Route Irish) also star.


Dodge and Halie are barely hanging on to their farmland and their sanity while looking after their two wayward grown sons. When their grandson Vince arrives with his girlfriend Shelly, no one seems to recognize him, and confusion abounds. As Vince tries to make sense of the chaos, the rest of the family dances around a deep, dark secret.

More about the show

In 1979, Buried Child was awarded a Pulitzer Prize and Obie Award before, in 1996, it received five Tony Award nominations following its revival on Broadway.

Adam Speers, executive producer at ATG said: “Both my co-producer Lisa Matlin and I feel privileged to have brought this production of Buried Child to the West End from New York, and are delighted that it’s now extending its run until 4th March.

“Sam Shepard’s Pulitzer prize-winning play is a masterpiece and this is a once in a lifetime opportunity to see one of the finest actors of his generation, Ed Harris, on stage in London.”
