In True West, two brothers—one, a moderately successful screenwriter (Dano), the other, a drifter (Hawke)—reunite in their mother's California home, leading to the airing of old resentments and some unexpected twists in the relationship.
The Roundabout revival will feature a creative team that includes Tony Award winner Mimi Lien (sets), Obie winner Kaye Voyce (costumes), and Tony nominee Jane Cox (lights).
