True West, a play by Sam Shepard

January 26, 2023 @ 7:30 pm - February 4, 2023 @ 7:30 pm

$10 – $35

True West is widely understood to be one of Sam Shepard’s most potent plays. The performance projects a grim slice of Americana, profiling two estranged brothers: a Hollywood screenwriter and a petty thief. The struggle of the American Dream is at the heart of this classic play, and Sam Shepard brings all its ugliness and heartbreak to light.

“Shepard’s masterwork… It tells us a truth, as glimpsed by a 37-year-old genius.”
– New York Post

“I wanted to write a play about double nature, one that wouldn’t be symbolic or metaphorical or any of that stuff. I just wanted to give a taste of what it feels like to be two-sided. It’s a real thing, double nature. I think we’re split in a much more devastating way than psychology can ever reveal. It’s not so cute. Not some little thing we can get over. It’s something we’ve got to live with.” – Sam Shepard
