“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.
