Buzz Bin 

by MICHAEL BOWEN & r & & r & Famished and Foreclosed & r & & r & In the words of director Kevin Connell, Sam Shepard's Curse of the Starving Class "tells the story of a family trying furiously to escape the 'curse' of alcohol, fate, lost hope, and disastrous economic judgments like, 'Why not go in debt for a few grand, if all it is is numbers?'"


"Banks are loaning money right, left and center," the mother tells her son. "Everyone wants a piece of land. It's the only sure investment. It can never depreciate like a car or washing machine." Shepard's 1978 play apparently saw the future coming. See it at Gonzaga's Magnuson Theater from Friday through Nov. 2. Visit stagethrust.blogspot.com or call 313-6533.
