SUNSET BABY at Arts West presents a slice of life with all its complexities, troubles, and truths. Troubled pasts, hard choices, and conflicting emotions rule the day in this show. No one has it easy, and no one escapes unscarred. Everyone has baggage, but must own their choices. They must all decide if they can find the courage to do better, to be better, or let their past rule their future.

A lot is written about the effect of an absent father on sons. The phrase 'A boy needs his father' is often bandied about in conversation but not really heard concerning daughters. Scores of scholarly papers about this have been written with experiments and scientific data that reinforce the importance of a father in their daughter's life. Sunset Baby by Dominique Morisseau explores that very theme in this production by the Black Theatre Troupe (BTT).

Residents of Fremont County, CO, have learned the hard way that when you invite evil in, it stays. VALLEY OF THE DAMNED is a six-part series examining seven murders that rocked the beautiful, desolate mountain region of Fremont County, deep in the Colorado Rockies. This vast, inhospitable region of Southern Colorado is known as Prison Valley because it is home to 15 high security prisons including America's only Federal Supermax. This valley has more correctional facilities than any other in the US, so in a town where you're surrounded by prisons, how does someone get away with murder? The brand-new series VALLEY OF THE DAMNED premieres Tuesday, September 3 at 10/9c only on Investigation Discovery (ID).

Sibling rivalry between brothers goes back to the Bible story of Cain and Abel, with one pitted against the other due to jealousy, often resulting in a deadly game of one upmanship. Such is the case between Lee and Austin, two estranged brothers at the center of Sam Shepard's TRUE WEST, who reunite at their mother's rustic home in the San Bernardino foothills about 40 miles east of Los Angeles. Sparks fly and passions rage as the two erratic characters, apparently from totally opposite ends of the success spectrum, nearly reach the end of their troubles by catching a glimpse of paradise just around the corner, which turns out to be totally unattainable.
