Dark, absorbing

This dark family drama of mostly miserable Midwestern characters kept me pulled in and works as a swiftly paced, well acted and entertaining radio performance. However I don't agree that it is Pulitzer Prize worthy. I really don't see that at all.

Performance didn't translate to audio

I had trouble following stage directions and in general the plot with this recording. First time listener beware... Not the best route to enjoying Buried Child
