No late seating, so beware! And be patient when being directed to your seats/ getting your program. FYI, the even numbered seats are near the theatre door with odds opposite; all two-digit seat numbers (i.e., 29, 31, etc.) are on the "sides" with the three-digit ones (i.e., 102, 104, etc.) facing centre stage.

Description

With equal parts humor and intensity, True West dissects the American Dream and the divide it creates between imagination and reality. Sam Shepard’s most popular black comedy is a gritty examination of two warring brothers that has inspired a new generation of playwrights, including the UK’s Martin McDonagh, to take their own darkly comic look at sibling rivalry.  Through the power struggle between Austin and Lee, True West brings the question of cultural and individual identity into sharp focus.
