"Sons of a desert dwelling alcoholic and a suburban wanderer clash over a film script. Austin, the achiever, is working on a script he has sold to producer Saul Kimmer, when Lee, Austin's brother and petty thief, drops in. Lee pitches his own idea for a movie to Saul, who then wants Austin to junk his bleak, modern love story and write Lee's trashy Western tale."

"True West" is considered Shepard's masterpiece comedy of contradictions, in that the play is at once clear, funny and naturalistic yet also opaque, terrifying and naturalistic."

Directed by Donald Sheehan, the cast includes Theresa Chiasson as Mom, Obadiah Kelley as Lee, Alfred Naddaff as Saul Kimmer and Donald Sheehan as Austin.
