True West
Melbourne Theatre Company presents
True West

1 Aug 2020 to 4 Sep 2020

----------------------------------------- SHOW CANCELLED -----------------------------------------

This landmark American classic by Pulitzer Prize-winning writer Sam Shepard examines the male psyche through an explosive, darkly comic tale of sibling rivalry. In this darkly witty masterpiece of modern theatre, Austin is a young, ambitious screenwriter on the verge of his first big hit. He's taking sanctuary house-sitting for his mum at their family home in southern California, but the quiet of the desert is shattered by the unexpected arrival of Austin’s brother, Lee, a part-time thief and full-time hustler. When Lee embroils himself in Austin’s next film project, tensions quickly flare and brutal ambition gives rise to a deadly stand-off.

True West is a searing portrait of blood brothers – polar opposites, inextricably linked, whose savage relationship embodies their country’s pent-up resentments. This fiery new production is directed by MTC Associate Artistic Director Sarah Goodes (The Children), starring Josh McConville (Golden Shield).
