True West archiveTwo contrasting visions of America, imagined through the different characters of two brothers: Southern California. Austin, a Los Angeles screenwriter, is house-sitting for his mother while he puts the finishing touches to his current scriptwriting project. His hopes for peace and quiet disappear with the arrival of Lee, a small-time crook and drifter or as he would have it: 'desert survival expert'. When a Hollywood producer arrives to discuss Austin's project, Lee hijacks the meeting with a pitch for a Western based on his own, exaggerated life. The producer is browbeaten into offering Lee a big-bucks advance and Austin agrees to put his brother's vision into words. But their rivalry is too much for them and the tension rises into a dramatic finale. A devastatingly realistic power struggle from inside the mind of 'the bucking bronco of American theater'.
Performers Kit Harington (Austin), Johnny Flynn (Lee), Madeleine Potter (Mom), Donald Sage Mackay (Saul Kimmer).
Author Sam Shepard. Director Matthew Dunster. Design Jon Bausor. Lighting Joshua Carr. Sound Ian Dickinson.
