HST KICK THINGS OFF WITH SHEPARD CLASSIC.
AUSTIN is a Hollywood screenwriter on the verge of his big break. In from the desert is Lee, his on a “working vacation".
He’s a thief, televisions mostly. Like a modern day Cain and Abel, these two brothers proceed to tear into each other’s lives, questioning each other’s ideals and waging war not just on each another...but themselves.
Sam Shepard’s classic play True West has been described as a civil war between two brothers.
A dark comedy about the double nature that satirises the
American dream and the romantic western myth.
Press & Reviews
Human Sacrifice Theatre is a new independent theatre company - the brainchild of Mark Diaco and Justin Hosking, two local actors who have recently to Melbourne after studying in the US. And if it’s first production is indicative, it could well become a power in the land.
