The Rehoboth Beach Film Society announces an exciting new theatrical experience series. Through a partnership with online theater streaming service, BroadwayHD, select theater content from the brand’s video on-demand library is now available at the Cinema Art Theater.

Sam Shepard's Pulitzer Prize-winning play Buried Child returns 20 years after its last major New York production, with this revival by The New Group in association with Lisa Maitlin, directed by Scott Elliott.

Dodge (Ed Harris) and Halie (Amy Madigan) are barely hanging on to their farmland and their sanity while looking after their two wayward grown sons (Rich Sommer and Paul Sparks). When their grandson Vince (Nat Wolff) arrives with his girlfriend (Taissa Farmiga), 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.

This is a thoughtful presentation that’s absorbing enough to remind us of why it’s always worth revisiting Mr. Shepard’s haunting play. “Buried Child” is as effective a portrait as exists of the profound ambivalence with which we all regard where we come from.
