Game Of Thrones actor to star in True West

Kit Harington and Johnny Flynn will star in the West End premiere of Pulitzer Prize-winner Sam Shepard’s play True West.

The first UK production of Shepard’s work since his death last summer, True West will play at the Vaudeville Theatre (November 23-February 16).

Harington is renowned for his leading role as Jon Snow in the TV series Game of Thrones while Flynn is the star of feature film Beast and US TV series Genius.

They will play warring brothers Austin and Lee.

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.

Additional casting is to be announced.
