Connectivity and change : how the plays of Sam Shepard influenced my short career in the professional theatre (an examination, a retrospective and a proposal Garfat, Robert


Over the following pages, I will examine the work of American playwright, Sam Shepard, specifically the play that I directed as my thesis production twenty-five years ago, Buried Child. I will follow this with looks at several of the plays I produced with the theatre company I founded while a student at UBC, Dark Horse Theatre, and will close with a look at another, later, Shepard play, A Lie of the Mind with an eye to how I would approach that play were I to propose directing it today.
