"It's clear, funny, naturalistic. It's also opaque, terrifying, surrealistic."

True West
By Sam Shepard

with Joe Canuso & E. Ashley Izard

"What kinda people kill each other most?  Family people.  Brothers."

Bitter sibling rivalry surfaces when brothers Austin and Lee reunite in True West, the classic play by Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright, director, and Academy Award-nominated actor Sam Shepard (The Right Stuff, Black Hawk Down).  Together in their mother's house in the desert, jealousy threatens to ignite a powder keg between the men in a sometimes terrifying, darkly comic struggle for dominance.
