'True West'
Enrique Bravo, left, as "Lee" and Ryan Conarro as "Austin" in "True West," which shows at the Canvas Arts Center & Gallery at 8 p.m. Thursdays-Sundays from Nov.8-18. The new Juneau theatrical production company Thunder Mountain Theatre Project will produce and Flordelino Lagundino will direct the Sam Shepard play of a young Stanford graduate with a promising career as a screenwriter who is paid an unexpected visit by his alcoholic desert-dwelling brother, Lee, while working on a script in their vacationing mother's home. Austin must contend with Lee's volatile, sometimes violently dangerous nature over the course of a few days, and his life is drastically altered as both brothers realize the depth of their relationship and the extent of their similarities. Tickets are $15 for adults, $10 for seniors over 65 and military with valid identification and $8 for students and sold at both locations of Hearthside Books and at the door.
