Austin, a screenwriter, and Lee, a petty criminal, are recently reconciled brothers with little in common. Confined together in a suburban home, Austin prepares for a lucrative meeting with a Hollywood producer, a connection which prompts keen interest from Lee. Shepard's searing black comedy takes apart the resentment of sibling estrangement to reveal that perceived differences are perhaps not all they seem.

True West opens March 25th.  Click here for show date and times, and for ticket information.
