Hot on the heels of the Tin Ceiling's riotous seven/24 vii, the Tin Ceiling continues its eighth season with an exploration into the heat of fraternal tension and the dark lands of the creative writing process with its production of True West by Pulitzer-prize winning author Sam Shepard.

True West is a comic nightmare of confrontation. Austin is an ambitious Hollywood screenwriter working on a potential million-dollar deal when an ill wind off the desert blows in his brother Lee, a hobo thief with a six-pack and a case of sibling rivalry. The conflict arises when a film producer offers Lee the chance to write a "true" western. In a role reversal as intricate as it is riveting, the brothers head toward Shepard's outrageous showdown.

Come join us for the second show of our eighth season, a highly kinetic production that will make you wonder where your toaster went, solve the age old question of typewriter vs golf club, and leave you looking twice at your sibling.
"True West" will play Friday-Sunday, July 11-13, 18-20, 25-27

3159 Cherokee, St. Louis, MO 63118.
All shows at 8pm for $10.
