The Tate family is in serious trouble. Parents Ella and Weston are cornered and feuding, each struggling at cross-purposes to unload the family’s homestead and get out from under crushing debt. Meanwhile, their raucous and unpredictable teenage kids Emma and Wesley fight to scratch out an existence of their own.

Winner of the 1977 Obie Award for Best New American play, Curse of the Starving Class balances a searing portrait of a rural, working class family in distress against savage dark comedy in Sam Shepard’s trademark style.
