True West, by Sam Shepard

True West Poster 2.jpg

This American classic explores alternatives that might spring from the demented terrain of the California landscape. Children of a desert-dwelling alcoholic and a suburban wanderer clash over a film script. 

"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
