Kit Harington and Johnny Flynn to star in Sam Shepard’s True West

Kit Harington and Johnny Flynn are to star in the West End premiere of Sam Shepard’s True West.

It will run at the Vaudeville Theatre from November 23 to February 16, with press night on December 4.

The play will be directed by Matthew Dunster, who said: “There is something dangerous about True West. It’s always unsettled me. I was always scared of reading it. Fearful of its burning content but also of its brilliance. When Sam Shepard died I went back to it and I knew I had to find way of doing it.”

It is produced by Smith and Brant Theatricals and Empire Street Productions. 

Harington was last in the West End in Doctor Faustus, while Flynn starred in Hangmen, both at the Royal Court and in the West End.
