True West

A 2000 Tony Award nominee for Best Play, True West is an intense, funny, and explosive tale of polar-opposite brothers: Austin, a mild-mannered screenwriter hoping to score his big break, and Lee, an unpredictable and volatile drifter hoping to score any way he can. True West explores the maddening, hilarious, and dangerous bonds shared by family, resulting in a work the New York Times praised as "a great American play, arguably Mr. Shepard's finest."

In a unique and exciting approach to the play, actors Jeremy Mahr and Mike Schulz alternate the roles of Austin and Lee throughout the run of the performance, with casting of the roles determined by coin toss.



REVIEWS

"Riotous, raucous, and occasionally tender, True West is a must-catch..."
- David Burke, Quad-City Times

"There's an excitement present in watching them interact
as chaos (and flying toast) ensues...
...there's no doubt as to the impressive abilities of these two actors."
- Thom White, River Cities' Reader

"The best of what live theatre can do...
...an electrifying, tense, edge-of-your-seat thrill ride of a play."
- Jonathan Turner, The Dispatch-Argus
