WILDEINTENTIONS

SMU Student Theatre Performance

WILDEINTENTIONS is an original project compiled by Steven Smith and a group of nine gay men at SMU. For the past 13 weeks, the cast has gathered to discuss and write about what it means to be a gay man. They posed questions and prompts and held discussions on shame, being gay in the fraternity circuit, commodification of gay culture, allies, body image, love, loss, sex and coming out. Each member of the cast had a share in the writing process of the piece in order to give a voice to those who are voiceless in the community.

True West

SMU Student Theatre Performance

The plot of True West centers around the sibling rivalry between two brothers who have just reconnected after being apart for five years. Like most of Shepard’s works, the play is inspired by American life and popular culture. While the play is considered one of Shepard’s more accessible, conventional, and realistic plays, it also touches on something grand, mythical and magical with its bizarre plot twists, outrageous and absurd humor and the poetic language of the writing.
