Event Details


True West


Presented at Florence Busby Corriher Theater


Written by Sam Shepard


Directed by Dayna Anderson


True West winds in and out, doubles back on itself,

and mystically investigates not only the problems of our

society, but raises even more questions about how we

define ourselves, our success, our history.

Set in a 1980 retirement home, TRUE WEST links an

absent mother with an even more absent father, and

the resultant writer-son is attempting redemption

through the penning of a classic Western screenplay.

But something is amiss, the rules we live by are broken,

and the words won’t come. Two brothers--one who

follows every rule and another who doesn’t recognize

any of them—now align for a fight to the death. But

which is right and which is wrong? It’s hard to tell the

difference between the good, the bad and the ugly

when all look exactly the same.

Set in the FBC with classic Western movies setting

the stage, the show simultaneously howls with the

dismay of broken dreams and growls with the pessi-

Austin: I am taking off with Lee.

Mom: You gonna go live with your father?

Austin: No, we’re going to a different desert Mom.

Mom: I see. Well, you’ll probably wind up on the

same desert sooner or later.

And so the struggle for a new American identity,

connection and meaning winds on.
