Abstract:During the second half of the twentieth century, the American individuals faced different challenges and problems due to the increasing economic, political, social, and individual crises. As a result, the society members became more alienated and more hostile toward one another. Sam Shepard as an American individual and playwright depicted most of the crises and sometimes the origins of the crises in his family plays. He, panoramically, mirrored the American families and disintegrated members unlike any other playwright of the time.
