Ed Harris, acting maverick and major Hollywood star makes his UK stage debut in a brand new West End production of Sam Shepard’s Pulitzer Prize winning play Buried Child.
A gripping, provocative and wildly funny tragicomedy, Buried Child is the examination of a disenfranchised America, which is as relevant today as it was when first presented 40 years ago.
The dramatic play filled with secrets and lies stars an exceptional cast including five time Oscar nominee and Golden Globe winner Ed Harris, Oscar and Emmy nominee and Golden Globe winner Amy Madigan and one of the hottest new British actors of his generation and London Film Critics’ Choice Award nominee Jeremy Irvine.
Brought to you by the creative team behind the The Spoils,which starred Jesse Eisenberg, Buried Child was last staged in the UK 12 years ago. It arrives at The Trafalgar Studios from November 14th for 14 weeks only.

Q: Who wrote Buried Child?
Competition closes 4pm Friday 21 October.
Dodge (Harris) and Halie (Madigan) 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, 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. This wildly poetic and cuttingly funny take on the American family drama gleefully pulls apart the threadbare deluded visions of our families and our homes.
