Logo for True West

Auditions for True West by Sam Shepard directed by Joe Hendren will take place on:
1-3:00 p.m., Sunday, Feb 16 and
7-9:00 p.m., Tuesday, Feb 18
Room 150, Music/Fine Arts Building, Concordia University-St Paul, 310 Hamline Avenue N, Saint Paul

Please prepare a single contemporary dramatic or serio-comic monologue - 1-2 minutes in length - and a list of any actual or potential conflicts during the rehearsal/performance period.

Rehearsals will be generally be held Sunday-Thursday evenings (with exceptions) and are expected to start in earnest the week of March 29, though a read-through may be held earlier in March. There will be no rehearsal April 12 (Easter Sunday). The actors playing Austin and Lee should be expected to be called for every rehearsal.


The ages listed for the characters are approximate and are less important than the ages of the actors in relation to each other - especially for the brothers and Mom.

Austin (M) - 25-40, the younger brother

Lee (M) - 30-50, the older brother

Saul (M) - 30s-60s, Hollywood Producer

Mom (F) - 40s-70s, Austin and Lee's mother
