Why See True West?

Oh Brother where art thou

Join Gloucester Stage Company for their revival of Sam Shepard's modern American classic. A twisted exploration of sibling rivalry set in the wilds of the California desert, Shepard's distinct black humor, and poetic plotting combines to create an unforgeable portrait of two brothers walking a line between success and sanity.

What is the story of True West

Lee and Austin have never seen eye to eye. Austin, the ambitious screen writer has always seen his brother Lee, as a unsuccessful drifter. Whilst housesitting their Mother's Californian home, they begin to battle each other on issues big and small. But when Lee railroads Austin's latest project and scares off his producer, the fued escalates to all out war, pitting each against each other in a role-reversal that could change their lives for ever.
