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.

  • Disappointing

    6 December 2018

    I love this play and know Shepard's work reasonably well. This telling of True West falls short of delivering the powehouse of tension and humour implicit in this play-Stakes were low - humour sparse and tension barely existent. The actors are good but in this piece they are lost and only barely get what the play is about i.e A sibling relationship and that did not come across. I did not believe them. This play is extroadinary but this production is like watching a mildly amusing sitcom.

    Having not seen the play before didn’t know what to expect. Loved the huge contrast between the personalities of the two brothers brilliantly played by Kit Harington and Johnny Flynn. As the wonderful and chaotic second act unfolded, the atmosphere changed to almost farce. A great evenings entertainment.
