April 9th-11th & 16th-18th, 2009

  • WRITTEN BY: Sam Shepard
  • DIRECTED BY: Travis Stubeing

True West is a comic nightmare of confrontation. The play is about two brothers: Austin is an ambitious Hollywood screenwriter working on a potential million-dollar deal when an ill wind off the desert blows in Lee, a hobo thief with a six-pack and a case of sibling rivalry. The conflict arises when a film producer offers Lee to write a “true” western. In a role reversal as intricate as it is riveting, the brothers head toward Shepard’s outrageous version of the Western movie showdown.
