He had the right stuff: Hon­or­ing Sam Shep­ard

Pasatiempo - - RANDOM ACTS -

It’s been a year since Sam Shep­ard died, leav­ing be­hind a legacy of deeply Amer­i­can sto­ries. Shep­ard spent five decades up­end­ing quaint, ro­man­ti­cized no­tions of fa­mil­ial love and loy­alty. In the process, he en­snared the cre­ative imag­i­na­tion of Scott Har­ri­son, founder of Iron­weed Pro­duc­tions, a lo­cal theater com­pany that has pre­sented a num­ber of Shep­ard’s plays over the years. Har­ri­son and other Iron­weed ac­tors pay trib­ute to the Pulitzer Prize-win­ning play­wright in An Evening Hon­or­ing the Work of Sam Shep­ard at 7 p.m. Sun­day, July 29, at El Museo Cul­tural de Santa Fe (555 Camino de la Fa­milia). Read­ings of Shep­ard’s works are fol­lowed by a re­cep­tion. There is no charge for ad­mis­sion. For more in­for­ma­tion, visit iron­weed­santafe.com. — Jen­nifer Levin
