The Village Players of Hatboro continues its 68th season with True West, by Pulitzer-winning playwright Sam Shepard.
This drama/black comedy runs for three weekends: Fridays and Saturdays, March 4th through 19th, at 8pm, with two Sunday matinees on March 6th and March 13th at 2pm.
Set in an outer Los Angeles suburb on the edge of the desert, True West focuses on the tense reunion of two brothers: Lee, a drinking, drifting, thieving hustler looking to go on a burglary spree, and Austin, a successful Hollywood screenwriter housesitting for his mother while she is on an Alaskan cruise. After Lee befriends Austin’s producer and attracts his attention with story ideas, Austin finds his own project in jeopardy. As the brothers slowly exchange lives, they find themselves in an unlikely partnership to complete a script for a “real life” western.
Please note: This production contains adult themes and language.
