Sam Shepard’s masterwork, True West is a gritty, whisky-fueled character study focusing on the strained relationship between two men, polar opposites, who happen to be brothers. Austin is a successful screenwriter, while Lee is a troublesome drifter and small-time thief. While Austin works on a script for a modern love story, Lee befriends Austin’s producer, bulldozing his way into his own screenplay contract. As their verbal push-and-shove continues, it becomes apparent that each secretly envies the other’s life. This modern-day classic keeps you on the edge of your seat as it explores the seedy underbelly of the American dream. See True West in Concord at The Umbrella Center for the Arts.
