Shepard’s ‘True West’ featured in Readers Theatre

San Juan Community Theatre will present Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Sam Shepard’s character-study about the relationship between two brothers, “True West,” in the next edition of On Book! Readers Theatre series, Wednesday-Thursday, at 7:30 p.m.

First released in 1980, True West played on Broadway 20 years later. It examines the brothers’ relationship and how their roles become reversed as conflict between the two arises, and finds both admitting that they always had longed to be in the other’s shoes.

Directed by John Davis, the cast features Daniel Finn, Dorian Oliver and Jacki Altier Roth. Doors open at 7 p.m., admission is free, with festival seating. Visit www.sjtheatre for more information.
