A tour de force of sibling rivalry, the New York Times heralds True West as "a great American play, arguably Mr. Shepard's finest" and is considered by some to be Sam Shepard's most affecting and distilled work to date, True West explores the intense relationship between two brothers on opposite spectrums of life.  Watch these brothers fight, drink, cheat and steal in a tempestuous struggle to connect with one another's world.  

 

"'True West' has ... arguably become Shepard's signature piece, the leanest, most pointed of his full-length works."  ...David Krasner, A Companion to Twentieth Century American Drama.

"Shepard's masterwork.... It tells us a truth, as glimpsed by a37 year old genius." ...NY Post


"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
