""You change," Sam Shepard told @nytimes. "You go through all kinds of contortions. But the play is the same." The 72-year-old playwright and actor has returned to New York for the @thenewgroupnyc's revival of his play "Buried Child," a wrenching family drama — part comedy, part tragedy, part mystery, part horror show. The play, which premiered in San Francisco in 1978 and moved to New York a few months later, won the Pulitzer Prize for drama in 1979 and helped transform #SamShepard from a fringe writer to a major playwright. That's a label he doesn't necessarily agree with. "A lot of American playwrights seem to have a career as a playwright," he said. "I don't consider it a career at all." @chadbatka photographed Sam Shepard at New 42nd Street Studios, following rehearsals. Performances of "Buried Child" begin tomorrow." By nytimes on Instagram.
