TRUE WEST IS considered among the late Sam Shepard's most seminal plays and is a darkly comedic and sometimes terrifying powder keg showdown of sibling rivalry. Set in their mother's suburban kitchen in her absence, brothers Lee and Austin battle and bond over the course of a week creating some of the most gripping theater you'll see this year. The Santa Paula Theater Center production has two of Ventura Couny's finest actors, Ron Feltner and Brian Robert Harris, playing the brothers and alternating roles every other weekend. Opening weekend Lee will be played by Mr. Feltner and Austin played by Mr. Harris (see schedule below). Supporting players are Nigel Chisolm as Saul and Nancy Solomons as Mom.
