Celebrating Sam Shepard's ingenious talent

Why See True West?

PlaysStrictly Limited RunsCeleb on Stage

Battling Brothers

Game of Thrones star, Kit Harington, heads back to the West End this winter for the revival of the late Sam Shepard's Pulitzer Prize finalist play, True West. Also starring Johnny Flynn, this production will celebrate Shepard's ingenious talent after the playwright sadly passed away last summer.

Kit Harington and Johnny Flynn

Kit Harington is a well known face after his starring role in the juggernaut television series, Game Of Thrones, but that's not all that he's done. Before heading off to Westeros Harington was a regular on the theatrical scene having appeared in Posh, and War Horse. Flynn's previous theatre credits include the 2010 Globe production of Richard III, which later transferred to Broadway, and Twelfth Night where Flynn performed alongside the likes of Mark Rylance and Stephen Fry.

What is True West about?

Brothers Lee and Austin have never seen eye to eye. Austin, the successful and ambitious screen writer has always seen Lee, as a lazy and undetermined drifter. Whilst visiting their Mother's recently abandoned Californian home, the brothers battle each other on issues big and small. However as the fuelling pair begin to air out old resentments and discover some life-twisting revelations, could this last visit be the tonic that brothers need to reconnect?

It isn't often that the trifecta of the writing, directing and acting of a play harmonise perfectly into a deeply satisfying whole, but when that happens - as it does in Milly Thomas's award winning one-person play Dust - it makes for a very thrilling 80
