A Multigenerational Reflection on Launching—and Revisiting—a Legendary Work
ABOUT THIS SHOW
In 1982, Steppenwolf exploded onto the American Theatre scene with its now legendary production of Sam Shepard's True West. Decades later, Steppenwolf is revisiting the play with a production helmed by longtime ensemble member and former Artistic Director Randall Arney, featuring ensemble member Francis Guinan revisiting the role he played in 1982 and starring ensemble members Jon Michael Hill and Namir Smallwood playing brothers Austin and Lee. On this momentous occasion a multigenerational group of ensemble members gather for a one-night live event, an intimate and frank reflection on legacy and ensemble, as they retrace the history which brought True West to Steppenwolf audiences in 1982, and again now in 2019.
Moderated by ensemble members Glenn Davis and Caroline Neff, and featuring ensemble members and True West artists past and present Randall Arney, Francis Guinan, Jon Michael Hill, Jeff Perry and Namir Smallwood.
This event will be audio and video recorded.
