Filled with dark humor, whisky and the wanton destruction of property, Sam Shephard's True West is a gritty character study that explores an encounter between two estranged brothers. Austin is a successful Hollywood screenwriter whose brother Lee is a violent and menacing drifter and small-time thief. Their separate lives come crashing together after a chance meeting at their mother's house. Lee forces himself onto one of Austin's writing projects and the two very different brothers gradually start to take on each other's roles. In what some consider Shepard's signature piece and masterwork, the two brothers battle for survival and their own salvation, but they might destroy each other (and their mom's house) before they find it.

Quotes & Highlights

Written by Neil Simon
This classic comedy opens as a group of the guys assemble for a night of cards in the apartment of divorced Oscar Madison. And if the mess is any indication, it’s no wonder that his wife left him. Late to arrive is Felix Unger, who has just been separated from his wife. Fastidious, depressed and none too tense, Felix seems suicidal, but as the action unfolds Oscar becomes the one with murder on his mind when the clean-freak and the slob ultimately decide to room together with hilarious results as The Odd Couple is born.
The Odd Couple originally opened on Broadway in 1965 and won several Tony Awards.
