True West

The Tampa Repertory Theatre presents Sam Shepard’s bracing comedy, True West. The play explores an explosive conflict—over the writing of a movie script—between Californian brothers: a desert-dwelling drunk and an uptight suburbanite. For this funniest and fiercest brother act in the American canon, TampaRep pairs two of Tampa Bay’s most accomplished actors: Jack Holloway and Dan Granke as brothers Lee and Austin (or, depending on the night you come, Austin and Lee). True West also features Jamie Jones and Caroline Jett, all under the direction of Megan Lamasney. The New York Times called True West “arguably Shepard’s best” play, and observed that while “True West has its cavernous depths… it also has a surface that is as accessible and entertaining as anything this playwright ever wrote.”
