The Theatre program presents Buried Child, the 1979 Pulitzer Prize winning play by Sam Shepherd. Performances begin on February 21. Prof. Rosa Joshi directs.

“The play, a darkly comic masterpiece, uncovers a sinister secret buried deep in the recesses of the past that threatens to resurface and destroy an already deeply damaged family,” said Professor Rosa Joshi, director.

The play features students Samuel Asher ('15), Meme Garcia-Cosgrove ('14) Jacob Swanson ('15) Matthew Weingarten ('14), Lucas Kiehn-Thillman ('14), Emma Bjornson ('16), and Marshall Lewis ('14).

“Buried Child” runs from February 21 – March 3 at the Lee Center for the Arts. Tickets are $6 for students, $8 for SU faculty and staff, and $10 general admission.

The College of Arts and Sciences, the largest college in Seattle University, offers 42 undergraduate majors, 37 minors, and 7 master’s degrees. Students who wish to major in theatre must audition to be considered for the program.
