See Jim Parrack in Sam Shepard’s ‘True West’ in DetroitDetroit’s Magenta Giraffe Theatre Company is hosting two performances of Sam Shepard’s True West, featuring True Blood’s Jim Parrack. If you’re in the Detroit area, you can see it at the intimate 1515 Broadway Studio Theatre, but you have to act fast – the shows are this Saturday and Sunday, November 12 and 13.

In ”True West,” Austin, a successful screenwriter, is surprised by a visit from his brother Lee, who has come to steal some items from their mother’s house, which Austin is house-sitting. The rivalry between the brothers comes to a head when Lee pitches an idea for a film to a producer who has come to hear about Austin’s latest work, and the producer becomes very interested – provided Austin helps Lee to write the script. Things between him and Austin gradually reach a fever pitch as they work on the screenplay, leading to a surprising, but perhaps inevitable, conclusion.
