*** Recommended *** Frankly, I found the Writers Theatre production of “Buried Child” to be very heavy going. It’s weird, depressing and way too long (at nearly three hours). All of the characters are selfish and detestable people with the exception of the outsider – but she’s pretty selfish herself. I couldn’t find any redeeming characteristics in any of them. The acting was superb, however, so I give “Buried Child” 2 ½ Spotlights
