"...When we first see the Tate family in Sam Shepard's Curse of the Starving Class, now playing at Frederick's Maryland Ensemble Theatre (MET), they are already doomed, they just don't fully know it yet. In their broken-down, hardscrabble, Southwest house, each family member pursues his or her own dream - fantasy might be a better word - of a better life. Director Peter Wray brings together the characters and setting to create a taut, unsettling portrait of a family and way of life in dissolution, leavened sporadically by bitter, dark humor."
