True West

August 29 @ 8:00 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)
Performances on August 29th and 30th

Snowglobe Theatre is proud to present its second “main stage” online production of the year, Sam Shepard’s True West.

In True West, Austin, a struggling screenwriter in L.A., is staying at his mother’s house to finish a screenplay and sell it to a Hollywood producer (Saul). His brother, Lee, a wild-man who has been living on the desert for the past five years, has finally returned. The confrontation between the two of them encompasses what has happened to each of them for the last five years, what has become of their family, and culminates in a power struggle over Saul’s attention as Lee presents a screenplay idea of his own to compete with his brother’s. The tensions of being stuck with each other in the house, trying to write and come to terms with each other’s needs come to a head when their Mom makes her appearance and everything falls apart.

Lee – Jonathan Greenway
Austin – Kieran Hunt
Saul – Scott Kettles
Mom – Linda Nourse

Peter Giser – Director
Shelby Matthews – Stage Manager
Jonathan Greenway – Production Manager

Presented live on both Zoom and Facebook Live for two performances:
