Ebon Moss-Bachrach (The Bear), David Harbour (Stranger Things), Ann Dowd (The Handmaid’s Tale), and Denis O’Hare (Here We Are) will star in a one-night reading of Sam Shepard’s True West.

Taking place December 11 at 7pm, the reading will commemorate the late playwright’s 80th birthday and will serve as a benefit for Shepard’s longtime artistic home, off-Broadway’s Signature Theatre. Terry Kinney will direct.

The reading will reunite Moss-Bachrach and Harbour 20 years after they costarred in the Signature production of Lanford Wilson’s Fifth of July. Signature has presented Shepard’s plays Heartless (2012), The Late Henry Moss (2001), A Particle of Dread (Oedipus Variations) (2014), and Curse of the Starving Class (2019), which Kinney directed.
