Montclair State Department of Theatre and Dance presents a staged reading of True West, a play by Sam Shepard, as part of F.A.S.T (Friday Afternoon Student Theatre).

True West opens on a gleaming suburban kitchen in Southern California. Austin, a young screenwriter who is house-sitting for his vacationing mother, works furiously on a script which he expects to sell to Hollywood producer Saul Kimmer. To his annoyance, his brother, Lee, has dropped in for a visit. A petty thief and unredeemed slob, Lee is about as different from Austin as they come, and the animosity between them is palpable. 

Cast:
Lee - Christian Dilks 
Austin - Michael Sickles
Saul - Louis Pipon
Mom - Alexa Golieb

F.A.S.T.: Friday Afternoon Student Theatre, a program where majors bring original work or published pieces to life, working with peer actors and directors, presented by the students and faculty of the Department of Theatre and Dance.
