By Sam Shepard
Directed by Caleb Stern '19
Friday February 22 at 7pm. The Williston Theatre
A surreal, naturalistic story, Sam Shepard’s True West tells the story of two brothers. When Lee abruptly appears on the doorstep of his mother’s house, Austin, caring for the home, has no choice but to let him in. Over the course of several nights, tension between the brothers mounts as they clash over their rival views of Austin’s career and lifestyle. Shepard uses this simple conflict to discuss the nature of art, the disappearance of the Frontier, and the legacies parents leave their children.
True West runs 80 minutes with one ten-minute intermission.
