Finalist 1983 Pulitzer Prize in Drama
Sam Shepard’s master work is considered a classic of modern American theatre. Two sons of a desert dwelling alcoholic and a suburban wanderer clash over a film script. The result is a melt-down of hilarious and terrifying proportions.
Rated PG-13 for strong language and simulated violence. Please click the “PG-13” icon above right for more details.

True West…is 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.
