True West

Shepard's masterwork. It tells us a truth, as glimpsed by a 37 year old genius.’ 

New York Post 

Sam Shepard is contemporary American drama, True West is contemporary America’ 

The Guardian 

Shepard’s most accessible play. Scaldingly funny’ 



Kit Harington (Game of Thrones) and Johnny Flynn (Beast, Genius) star as warring brothers Austin and Lee in the West End Premiere of Pulitzer Prize-winner Sam Shepard’s ferociously funny, modern classic, True West

Austin is working on a movie script that he has sold to producer Saul Kimmer when Lee stumbles back in to his life. Never content to watch from the sidelines he pitches his own idea to Kimmer, an action which has far reaching consequences... 

Set in the searing heat of the Californian desert this critically acclaimed drama pits brother against brother as a family tears itself apart, exposing the cracks in the American Dream.

  • Really enjoy the work of Sam Shephard

    22 February 2019

    This was essentially a two hander play with a couple of bit parts thrown in - and I have no idea why there was the final scene with the mother - but up until that point I had thoroughly enjoyed the show and the acting. Black humour and sardonic. As I said, couldn't see the point of the final scene, so obviously I was missing something, but an afternoon well spent!

  • Unreal

    16 February 2019

    The whole atmosphere and the set of the show really made it clear that Vaudeville hall is the heart of the west end. Seeing talented actors transform and act so naturally was amazing and inspires me as an actor . It was incredible how the actors interacted with the audience after the show as it seemed more down to earth unlike a concert or a normal show.
