True West (1985)
Two brothers, one a drifter and the other a Hollywood screenwriter, meet in their mother’s home. Their clash of ambitions and driving needs results in a play of extraordinary emotional power, the kind of powerful, offbeat comedy that only Sam Shepard can create. Newsweek called Shepard “America’s leading playwright. ACT audiences saw his explosive Fool for Love here last year and the Pulitzer Prize-winning Buried Child in our 1980
