Porch Couch Productions and Red Curtain announce auditions for our joint production of the Sam Shepard classic, "True West" to be performed at the Red Curtain Arts Center in Marysville, WA.

This is the story of two brothers who embody two incredibly different sides of of the artist’s mentality. Austin, the busy body with an attention for detail, is a screenwriter taking care of his mother’s home while she is away in Alaska. He is thrown for a loop when his older brother, Lee, returns from a prolonged trip to the Desert. Lee, the idea man with an affinity to tell it like it is, is a small time crook who imbeds himself into Austin’s daily life and ultimately, his career. Over the course of the play we see how the artist’s mentality works, and how you can’t have your yin, without your yang.

Performances are Feb 14-18


Other details:
The Red Curtain Arts Center is in the Goodwill shopping center, behind the cosmetology school.


Character Breakdown / Project Needs
We are auditioning only for the roles of Saul and Mom. The brothers have already been cast.

*Saul Kimmer: Male, 40s. Can be played by anyone who can appear to be in their 40s.
Saul is a producer who has been working closely with Austin on a project and becomes strangely transfixed by the idea of Lee. He is your typical Hollywood producer. He thinks big, wants you to think big, and has the money to back it up. He plays hardball, but isn’t unwilling to listen to new ideas and take a gamble every now and then.

*Mom: Female, Mid 50s to early 60s. Can be played by anyone who can appear to be in their mid 50s to early 60s.
The boys mother who has been off on a trip for sometime. The boys do not know when she is returning, but they know that they must take excellent care of her home and her plants. She is the type of person who won’t leave a single tea leaf in her sink as she believes that to be clutter. A character who is forever searching for something greater and can’t afford to pass up on the opportunity of a lifetime to meet one of the world’s greatest artists.
