Arnolfini - est 1961

A raucous reimagining of Sam Shepard’s True West.

‘A triumph, theatrical magic’ – The Times


The infamous Lone Twin and The Table duo return from an eight-year hiatus with a piece inspired by Sam Shepard’s True West.

The original play is set in a kitchen, in a house, in a suburb, some 40 miles out of Los Angeles in the late 1970s. It tells the tale of a family storm with two brothers at its eye.

A classic study of social, cultural and political conflict and reconciliation, here True West is re-staged by Whelan, Winters and a tempestuous chorus. Hold onto your hats, it’s going to be quite a night.
