Big-screen success aside, multitasker Sam Shepard has made a lasting impact on American theater. Hailed as his masterwork, the Pulitzer-winning playwright’s 1980 offering True West explores sibling rivalry and double nature via a tense encounter between estranged brothers Austin (a straitlaced screenwriter) and Lee (a drunken con-man). Brought to life over the years by the likes of Tommy Lee Jones, John Malkovitch and the late Philip Seymour Hoffman, the surreal dramedy returns to the AtticRep stage under the direction of David Connelly.
