Main Street Players presents the theater company’s final show of the 2019 season, True West, by renowned actor and playwright Sam Shepard.
True West follows the story of two estranged brothers, Austin and Lee. Austin is a successful screenwriter who offers to house sit for his mother while working on a script he is trying to sell to Hollywood producer Saul Kimmer. Lee, an alcoholic and thief, unexpectedly shows up and proceeds to pitch his own movie idea to Kimmer, who then
decides to junk Austin’s bleak, modern love story and write Lee’s trashy Western tale.
The two brothers end up in a role reversal, with each admitting that he has always envied the other’s way of life.
The show is directed by Isaac Polanco, and the production manager is Adrian Ardila. The cast is as follows: Austin — Tyler Grimes; Lee — Christopher Millan; Saul Kimmer — Kent Harris, and Mom — Carol Sussman.
True West runs Sept. 27-Oct. 20 with performances on Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m. and Sundays at 2 p,m. Tickets are $30 for adults, $25 for students, seniors, (65+) and military personnel.
