What's on

An evening with Sam Shepard

By Sam Shepard - Directed by Alice Cameron

A rehearsed reading of a selection of short stories by the late - and great - Sam Shepard.
Combining humour, tension and tragedy, Sam Shepard's sublimely written tales offer detailed snippets of life, plucked from the American West and the open spaces of Mexico.

  • A handmade sign in a fast food restaurant inspires a man to self-awareness, though he finds that its teenage creator is only dimly aware of its significance.
  • A man travelling down Highway 90 West gets trapped alone overnight inside a Cracker Barrel restaurant, where he is tormented by an endless loop of Shania Twain songs.
  • A woman refuses to acknowledge that her ever-increasing family of cats – and the subsequent pungent smell – will lead to her eviction from her trailer.

Join us at the Belfry to revel in a reading of selected short stories by the late, and great, Sam Shepard, one of America's most acclaimed writers.
Followed by a plate of home-made, heart-warming chilli con carne, included in the price of the ticket. 
Ticket price: € 12 and € 10 for students and 65.
Cast: Nora Van Dessel, Ruth England, Jimmy Finch, Jill Franks, Annelies Lightband, Brad Moore, Saskia Van Nuffelen, David Steen, Adrian Veale.
