Shepard’s Brothers Take Over the Seattle Rep in True West

By the mid 1970’s, Sam Shepard had begun to focus his play-writing skills more on story telling, character and family dynamics. Yet he never thoroughly abandoned his sense of the absurd and his formidable ability to fill his narratives with poetic leaps; for he was now able to grace his more grounded tales with his uniquely personal vision. True West first appeared in 1980 and is considered the last of his “Family Trilogy.” The New York Post called the play “Shepard’s masterwork.” The Seattle Rep and director Braden Abraham have staged a knockout production of the show to ring in the New Year for Seattle.
