Curse of the Starving Class

by Sam Shepard

Set during the 1970s economic recession, Curse of the Starving Class tells the story of the Tates, a rural Californian family willing to sacrifice money and blood in their maddening chase after an American dream that escaped them long ago.

"And they come crashing down to the earth. Both of them come crashing down. Like one whole thing."
