Dallas' Kitchen Dog Theatre presents the third show of its season, Sam Shepard's True West,, running through March 23.

Kitchen Dog co-founders, Dan Day and Joe Nemmers will rival as the play's two brothers who personify very different ideals of masculinity -- and of what constitutes the true American West. Austin, is an intellectual and screenwriter living with his family in L.A., while his brother Lee is a transient petty thief -- self-styled "outlaw" -- who has been living with a pit bull in the Mohave desert. Austin is house-sitting for his mother when he receives a surprise visit from Lee, and the two brothers confront each other in a bizarre role reversal.

True West premiered in 1979-80 season at San Francisco's Magic Theatre, then opened at Chicago's Steppenwolf Theatre, marking the theatre's first production brought to Broadway. A movie was made in 1983 starring Steppenwolf members John Malkovich and Gary Sinise.
