Audio Described Performance: Curse of the Starving Class by Sam Shepard

May 18 @ 2:00 pm - 4:30 pm

$35

This new production of Curse of the Starving Class, directed by Terry Kinney, honors Pulitzer Prize-winning Legacy Playwright Sam Shepard, who passed away in 2017. Living a stagnant, unhappy existence in rural California, the struggling Tate family is desperate for change, but every family member has a different way of trying to improve their station in life. Last produced in NYC by Signature more than 20 years ago, Curse of the Starving Class was called a play of “eloquent intensity, whirlwind farce and resonantly poignant insight” by Time Magazine.

For audience members who are blind or low vision, listening devices are issued which transmit a trained describer’s description of what is happening on stage during pauses in dialogue. Audio Description is available for select performances at Signature Theatre.
