TRUE WEST

TRUE WEST, written by Sam Shepard, focuses on the sibling rivalry between two estranged brothers, Austin and Lee. Austin, a moderately successful screenwriter, is housesitting for his mother, who is on vacation in Alaska. His older, more dominant brother Lee is there, and the two are reunited after five years. The two discuss their mother's house, which leads to the airing of old resentments. As the play progresses, the two experience some unexpected twists in their relationship.

UNA Summer Theatre’s production of True West is directed by two-time Tony-nominated director Randal Myler. Myler directed Summer Theatre 2012's production of A Streetcar Named Desire, the premiere production in the newly constructed George S. Lindsey Theatre. He also directed and co-wrote Summer Theatre 2013's smash hit Hank Williams: Lost Highway, and directed Summer Theatre 2014's comedy hit The 39 Steps.

Summer Theatre veterans Myk Watford (2012 A Streetcar Named Desire, 2013 Hank Williams: Lost Highway), Brian Sloan (2011 Death of a Salesman, 2014 The 39 Steps), and Kim Caron (2012 A Streetcar Named Desire, 2013 Hank Williams: Lost Highway) join UNA Theatre faculty Charlton James (2011 Death of a Salesman, 2012 A Streetcar Named Desire, 2013 Hank Williams: Lost Highway, 2014 The 39 Steps) in this star-studded cast.
