Contemporary American playwright/actor Sam Shepard is known for penning disturbing dramas that imaginatively examine society's moral malaise and spiritual famine. His characters are lonely individuals robbed of their dreams and purpose, their troubled thoughts expressed via lengthy monologues that have become a trademark of Shepard's works.
