|What is currently on at The Dukes (V523)|
Two 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'.
