TRUE WEST by Sam Shepard

In Sam Shepard’s Pulitzer Prize-nominated dark comedy, a pair of estranged brothers with more in common than they’d like to admit, outlaw Lee and screenwriter Austin, face off on the edge of the desert east of Los Angeles. They blunder into a misguided collaboration that flares into all-out combat pitting instinct against intellect, civilization against barbarism, art against commerce, and golf club against toaster.

True West is a hilarious, bracing evisceration of the toxic masculinity at the heart of the myth of American Maleness, a sardonic look at the corrupt fantasies of Hollywood fame, and a swan song for the sibling bond.

Sean Mewshaw, director of 2017’s hit production Constellations, wades into the blacker depths of comedy he plumbed in 2011’s shocking Killer Joe, and will stage True West in a hyper-detailed 1980’s-era immersive environment custom built for the gallery at SPACE.

Starring Matthew Delamater and Rob Cameron, with Joe Bearor and Moira Driscoll.

Please note that seating is limited to 45 audience members per show.

Online ticket sale ends at 5:30 PM on the performance day.
