True West by Sam Shepard
This American classic explores alternatives that might spring from the demented terrain of the California landscape. Sons of a desert-dwelling alcoholic and a suburban wanderer clash over a film script.
Finalist! 1983 Pulitzer Prize for Drama
“True West has... arguably become Shepard's signature piece, the leanest, most pointed of his full-length works.” – David Krasner, A Companion to Twentieth-Century American Drama.
“Shepard's masterwork... It tells us a truth, as glimpsed by a 37-year-old genius.” – New York Post
“It's clear, funny, naturalistic. It's also opaque, terrifying, surrealistic. If that sounds contradictory, you're on to one aspect of Shepard's winning genius; the ability to make you think you're watching one thing while at the same time he's presenting another.” – San Francisco Chronicle
