“He’s still alive in me. He’s still walking around inside me. He put stuff in me that’ll never go away. Ever. He made sure a’ that.”

America. The great wide open.


Two families torn apart by more than one brutal marriage. Out of this bleak landscape emerges a human spirit that burns bright in its fight for salvation.


At heart a love story, this funny and gritty play explores the ambivalence of family relationships, of love lost and found, against the backdrop of a macho American West. With a Coen Brothers off-beat humour, dark and mystical A Lie of the Mind was written by Sam Shepard at the height of his powers.


In 2017, with a post-truth President in the White House, this play which charts the carnage that ensues from self-deception is as relevant now as when first performed in 1985.

“Mr. Shepard’s richest and most penetrating play, a 20th-century masterwork of a family portrait.” NEW YORK TIMES
