A Celebration of the Writings of Sam Shepard
Since its inception 10 years ago, Human Sacrifice Theatre has been Melbourne’s leading exponent of classic American Drama, particularly the works of Sam Shepard.
“I wish every American play we staged here was performed with this level of assurance and flair … the cast delivers an acting masterclass.” Cameron Woodhead - The Age
The extracts presented in this unique entertainment include his early Off-Off Broadway period when the plays were often performed against an aural background of hard rock music, the award winning family dramas, personal observations and movie scripts.
Woven through these works is an original music score which pulses with the rhythms of Sam Shepard’s writing.
He was an artist ‘who never ceased to grow, to explore, to confront and to listen to new music.’
