True West by Sam Shepard - Directed by Philip Breen - Starring Alex Ferns, Eugene O'Hare and others - Duration: 2 hours with a 15 min interval
Captured live at the Tricycle Theatre, London, in September 2014 and produced by Tricycle Theatre.
A masterpiece written by one of America’s most renowned living playwrights, exposing the cracks of the American Dream.
The rivalry between Austin and Lee, two estranged brothers is excellently shown in this modern classic theatre piece. Can the two brothers still work together after not having talked to each other for five years? As the tension evolves between them, they start discussing their father who has not been around for a very long time. A story of brotherly conflict, competition, violence and transformation.
“This searing staging of Sam Shepard’s play tackles the violence between two misfit brothers head-on.” The Guardian
“It’s one of those plays whose status is so assured that to start questioning it feels a bit like asking whether King Lear is any good.” The Financial Times
