True West opened at Third Avenue Playhouse in Sturgeon Bay on March 16. The production runs through April 9 and features Doug Mancheski, Jonathan Wainwright, Mark Moede, and Laurel Brooks. Robert Boles directs.
Estranged brothers claw for their piece of the American Dream in Sam Shepard’s deeply personal iconic play. In their mother’s house (Brooks), amidst the surreal terrain of the California desert, screenwriter and family man Austin (Wainwright) is confronted by brother Lee (Mancheski) whose reckless nature threatens to obliterate everything he has been working toward. Envy fuels a wild and side-splitting attempt to escape into each other’s lives.
Performances are Thursday, Friday and Saturday at 7:30 pm and Sunday at 2 pm. Tickets are $28 general admission and $12 students.
