by Sam Shepard
This American classic explores human terrain as complex as the California landscape in which the play is set. Sons of a desert-dwelling alcoholic and a suburban wanderer clash over a film script. Austin, the achiever, is working on a script he has already sold to a producer when Austin’s brother Lee, a petty thief, drops in. Lee pitches his own idea for a movie to the producer, who immediately wants Austin to scrap his bleak, modern love story and write his brother’s trashy Western tale. This darkly comic American masterpiece was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize for Drama in 1983.
