Ground Up and Rising is presenting the play “True West”, written by Sam Shepard, directed by Arturo Fernandez, and starring Collin Carmouze, Curtis Belz, and Claudio Pinto at the St. John’s On The Lake on Miami Beach.
“True West” is the story of Austin, a buttoned-down writer, hoping to make his first big movie deal and Lee, his rough nomadic older brother, who breezes back into Austin’s life like a chill wind off the desert. Lee, an opportunist and long-time larcenist, interrupts a meeting between Austin and a movie producer, Saul Kimmer, and quickly convinces Kimmer to discard Austin’s script in favor of a true western tale of Lee’s creation. As sibling rivalry spirals dangerously out of control, Austin sets out to prove he too can live his brother’s life.
