True West - 2000 - Broadway Tickets, News, Info & More

A fight is brewin' at mom's house. Austin is on the brink of something big. He has secured a Hollywood deal for his latest film script. Lee is a bum: a free agent. He's got nothing to his name except a six pack and a criminal record. They're brothers but they are as different as day and night. In this deliciously dark play of duality, Sam Shepard takes a long, hard look at America, from the romanticized West to the tranquility of picket-fenced suburbia.
