Tickets: $20 in advance at postproductionswindsor.ca or at the door

In Sam Shepard's high-energy modern classic, Austin -- a Hollywood acreenwriter -- is house-sitting for his mother, hoping for some time away from family and other distractions so he can finish his latest script. Unfortunately his estranged older brother, Lee -- a con-man and drifter -- arrives as well, hoping to use their mother's home as a base of operations while he steals from the neighbours. As the brothers attempt to negotiate a shaky truce, they find themselves forced to work together -- and become everything they both envy and loathe about each other.

As the San Francisco Chronicle wrote, TRUE WEST is "clear, funny, naturalistic. It's also opaque, terrifying, surrealistic. If that sounds contradictory, you're on to one aspect of Shepard's winning genius; the ability to make you think you're watching one thing while at the same time he's presenting another."

AUSTIN: Joey Wright
LEE: Dylan MacDonald
SAUL: Ian Loft
MOM: Cindy Pastorius

Produced and Directed by Michael Potter and Michael O'Reilly.
Poster Design by Kris Simic.
