Sam Shepard's True West and Noah Haidle's What is the Cause of Thunder? continue the 2009 season at Williamstown Theatre Festival.
Daniel Goldstein directs the Shepard work (July 15-26) on the Main Stage with a cast that features Nate Corddry, Paul Sparks, Stephen Kunken and Debra Jo Rupp.
Centering on squabbling siblings, True West "is an explosive exploration of family rivalry as two very different brothers attempt to sell Hollywood their version of the great American Western," as show notes read.
On the Nikos Stage, WTF artistic associate Justin Waldman stages the Haidle play (July 22–Aug. 2). The world premiere two-hander stars Betty Gilpin and Wendie Malick.
The comedy What is the Cause of Thunder? is described: "After 27 years on the same soap opera, Ada is starting to confuse her art and her life. But after so many years of acting, her art is her life."
