Previously Posted: MADELEINE Potter and Donald Sage Mackay complete the cast for the forthcoming West End premiere of Pulitzer Prize-winner Sam Shepard’s ferociously funny, modern classic, True West, which runs for a limited season at the Vaudeville Theatre from December 4, 2018 (previews from November 23) to February 23, 2019.

They join the previously announced Kit Harington – renowned for his leading role in the internationally acclaimed series Game of Thrones – and Johnny Flynn – star of the widely celebrated film Beast and US TV series Genius, and who received rave reviews for his performance in the New York transfer of Hangmen, in the first UK production of Shepard’s work since his death last summer.

Madeleine Potter will play Mom – the mother of warring brothers Austin and Lee – and Donald Sage Mackay will take the role of Hollywood producer, Saul Kimmer. They will star opposite Kit Harington and Johnny Flynn as brothers Austin and Lee.

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

Madeleine Potter’s credits include An Ideal Husband (West End and Broadway), The Crucible (Broadway), All My Sons (National Theatre) and Pygmalion (Roundabout Theatre).

Donald Sage Mackay has recently received acclaim for his performance in Angry Alan (Soho Theatre, Edinburgh Fringe). His credits also include A Moon for the Misbegotten (Lyric, Belfast and New York) and Linda (Manhattan Theatre Club).

True West is directed by Matthew Dunster.
