CSC's Lower Level Studio

In an effort to bond the ever-growing, multicultural, and socio-economically diverse people who comprise the population of California's vast Central Valley, we aim to create a community of united artists who experiment, perform, and pursue a wide variety of subjects and styles. Through performance and process-driven education programs, we engage, inspire, create, and empower artistic discourse.

"What kind of people kill each other most? Family people. Brothers."
 Sometimes to confront your own nature, you've got to fight like hell. Bitter sibling rivalry surfaces when brothers Austin and Lee reunite in True West, the classic play by Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright, director, and Academy Award-nominated actor Sam Shepard. Together in their mother's house in the desert, jealousy threatens to ignite a powder keg between the men as they wage a destructive battle through their fraternal bonds. Moments of humor and levity mingle with loneliness while Shepard’s tightly written play makes us witness to a forceful study of family ties and human frailty. 
"It's clear, funny, naturalistic. It's also opaque, terrifying, surrealistic"
-San Francisco Chronicle
