"STUNNING …….VICIOUS……HILARIOUS…….A MASTERPIECE….." NY Times

Written by Sam Shepard, actor and Pulitzer prize winner, this semi - autobiographical account of life in California in the 1980's is a dramatic yet often hilarious roller-coaster ride through the lives of two brothers. One brother, Lee, has spent three months living out in the desert while the other, Austin, is holed up in their mom's house desperately trying to finish the screenplay for a Hollywood movie. When Lee decides to visit his younger sibling, they are suddenly thrown together into a storm that just keeps on raging. What emerges is an unbelievable scenario of role reversal which reaches a peak when (who else) mom comes home! Professionally directed by guest director Paul Bourne of Cambridge, England.
