This Pulitzer Prize finalist and Tony-nominated play examines the relationship between two estranged brothers. It is set in the kitchen of their mother’s home in the desert, 40 miles east of Los Angeles. Austin, a screenwriter and achiever, is working on a script he has sold to producer Saul Kimmer. Lee is a demented petty thief who drops in and pitches his own idea for a movie to the producer. Sal then wants Austin to junk his bleak, modern love story and write Lee’s trashy Western tale.
