TRUE WEST

Bris­bane Pow­er­house, Au­gust 17-28

The Australian - Wish Magazine - - ARTS -

Funny and un­set­tling, in­spired by Sam Shep­ard’s up­bring­ing on the edge of the Mo­jave Desert, this 1983 play – a fi­nal­ist for the Pulitzer – be­gins with an un­easy sib­ling re­u­nion. Hollywood screen­writer Austin hasn’t seen his brother Lee, a drifter and a thief, in five years, and his re­turn brings dis­rup­tion and the prom­ise of vi­o­lence. This Bris­bane Pow­er­house pro­duc­tion stars Thomas Larkin and Ju­lian Cur­tis as the brothers whose ri­valry and rage will push them to the brink of mur­der.
