About True West

In 1982, Steppenwolf exploded onto the American theatre scene with its now legendary production of Sam Shepard's "True West." This American classic traces the volatile relationship of Austin and Lee, estranged brothers who find themselves holed up together in their mother's well-kept suburban house with a typewriter, a set of golf clubs, and the undeniable call of the desert. In its first Steppenwolf revival, a new generation of artists take on Shepard's masterpiece.
