About the show

Witness the West End premiere of Sam Shepard’s True West, starring Kit Harington and Johnny Flynn, at the Vaudeville Theatre.

True West is the tale of two brothers. Austin is working on a film script that he has already managed to sell to a producer. His brother Lee stumbles back into his life and causes havoc when he pitches his own idea. It’s a move that threatens to tear the family apart.

Harington is known worldwide for his lead role as Jon Snow in the HBO series Game Of Thrones. He made his last theatrical appearance in Jamie Lloyd’s West End revival of Marlowe’s Doctor Faustus in 2016. He has considerable experience on stage, though, with roles in the original National Theatre production of War Horse and the original Royal Court staging of Laura Wade’s Posh.

Flynn, whose work as a musician includes the theme song to the much-loved BBC series Detectorists, is also no stranger to the stage. He has worked extensively at the Royal Court. There’s his credits include the original productions of Jez Butterworth’s Jerusalem, Bruce Norris’ The Low Road and Martin McDonagh’s Hangmen.

Matthew Dunster directs True West. He has previously worked as associate director at both the Young Vic and Shakespeare’s Globe, while his list of directorial credits includes the award-winning smash hit Hangmen at the Royal Court and the critically-acclaimed Imogen at Shakespeare’s Globe.

Shepard wrote True West at a particularly productive time in his career. It came shortly after Curse Of The Starving Class and Buried Child, and shortly before Fool For Love and A Lie Of The Mind.

True West runs from 23 November 2018 – 16 February 2019 at the Vaudeville Theatre.
