Rep Stage

 

“True West”

By Sam Shepard
Directed by Vincent Lancisi
April 26–May 13, 2018

Well-educated Austin and thieving con man Lee, estranged brothers from different worlds, reunite in their mom’s California kitchen, where Austin is working on his screenplay.  But when Lee comes up with his own idea and steals much more than just the neighbors’ TV, challenges are issued, many drinks are downed, and the siblings find that they might not be such opposites after all.  Shepard’s explosive, darkly funny American classic is a tale of sibling rivalry, Hollywood producers and stolen toasters.

“It's clear, funny, naturalistic. It's also opaque, terrifying, surrealistic. If that sounds contradictory, you're on to one aspect of Shepard's winning genius; the ability to make you think you're watching one thing while at the same time he's presenting another." - San Francisco Chronicle
