By Sam Shepard. Directed by Nancy Curran Willis.
True West, a dark comedy from Pulitzer Prize winning author Sam Shepard, delves into the complicated relationship of two brothers. Austin, a young Stanford graduate with a promising career as a screenwriter, is paid an unexpected visit by his alcoholic desert-dwelling brother, Lee, while working on a script in their vacationing mother’s home. Welcome to Sam Shepard country where nothing is what it seems to be: sibling rivalry is the norm; toasters are not just for toast; and plants die from neglect. One of Shepard’s most acclaimed plays, True West was revived on Broadway in 2000 with Philip Seymour Hoffman and John C. Reilly winning Tony Award nominations for their performances.
Production Dates: May 2, 3, 4, 9, 10, 11, 16 & 17, 2008
