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.

The intimacy of the theatre was perfect for this intimate performance. Proof is a great story with subject matter I've been interested in all my life. Stage and lighting were excellent. As the story builds so do the performances by the actors. I look forward to other performances at this little gem of a theatre.
There will be a post-show gala reception — featuring dessert and a cast meet-and-greet — following the September 8th performance.
