'Curse of the Starving Class' is the centerpiece of the Stanford Summer Theater's Sam Shepard Festival. The play, written by Shepard in 1976 and first performed the following year at the Royal Court in London, is a remarkably prescient view of America in 2012. It is a darkly comic exploration of the American family psyche. As the four main characters shift into adolescence, adulthood and old age, they face the loss of their farm to debt and developers.
