Premiered in San Francisco in 1980, True West is one of Sam Shepard's funniest plays, as well as one of his most brutal. Austin is a stable, successful Hollywood screenwriter, Lee his menacing vagabond brother, and True West is the story of their attempt to trade lives. Their tragicomic quest to change identity ends in a stalemate, but along the way Shepard takes gleeful potshots at Hollywood, the myth of the frontier, and the escape fantasies that drive the American imagination.
