Written in 1980, True West is considered a modern classic and its author, Sam Shepard, one of the greatest modern American playwrights.
Austin is working on a movie script when his brother, Lee, a petty criminal who has been living in the desert for months, turns up and presents his own idea. In order to secure a deal, the brothers must grudgingly work together. The play deals with the subjects of jealousy, success and filial responsibility whilst showing us the American Dream in a stark, critical light.
