Photo Coverage: First look at Warehouse Theatre Columbus' TRUE WEST

Warehouse Theatre Columbus will present THE Sam Shepard FESTIVAL at MadLab Theatre August 31-September 22, 2018. The shows in the festival include: TRUE WEST, COWBOY MOUTH, BURIED CHILD and readings of CURSE OF THE STARVING CLASS, HEARTLESS, and FOOL FOR LOVE.

True West, an American classic, explores alternatives that might spring from the demented terrain of the California landscape. 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, a demented petty thief, drops in. He pitches his own idea for a movie to Kimmer, who then wants Austin to junk his bleak, modern love story and write Lee's trashy Western tale.

Written by Sam Shepard, TRUE WEST was a finalist for the 1983 Pulitzer Prize for Drama. Directed by Kristofer Green. STARRING: Brandon Maldonado and Justin King as both Lee and Austin switching roles nightly, Trenton Weaver as Saul Kimmer, and Josie Merkle as Mom.

PERFORMANCE DATES: FRI 8/31 at 8pm, SAT 9/1 at 8pm, SUN 9/2 at 3pm, FRI 9/7 at 8pm, SAT 9/8 at 7pm, and SUN 9/9 at 7pm For tickets or more info on upcoming dates for the Sam Shepard Festival visit: https://www.warehousetheatre.org/
