True West to have audio release

Couldn’t get tickets for True West? Or maybe you’ve already seen it, absolutely loved it but don’t have time to see it again? Whichever of these two categories you fall into, you’re going to be very excited about this news.

True West, which will close in a few weeks, will have an audio version globally released in April.  So you’ll be able to live, or relive the experience of this critically acclaimed show as many times as you like!

The True West audio will have the dulcet tones of the current cast, including its leads, Kit Harington (Game of Thrones) and Johnny Flynn (Beast, Genius, Lovesick). The audio will be directed by Olivier-nominated Matthew Dunster, who also directed the stage production, and featuring music composed by Joe Zeitlin and Johnny Flynn for the stage production.

Kit Harrington and Johnny Flynn said:

“We’re thrilled that True West has been recorded for an Audible release. It has been a very special production for us, and it is great that people will now have a chance to experience Sam Shepard’s exceptional play beyond the end of its run at the Vaudeville Theatre.”

Set in the searing heat of the Californian desert, True West is all about two competitive brothers, Austin (Kit) and Lee (Johnny). They’re both working on a film script, and trying to pitch to the same producer, what could possibly go wrong?

The audio release will be created by the world’s largest producer and provider of downloadable audiobooks, Audible. And this isn’t the first time they’ve brought a stage production to people’s headphones either, having previously released audio versions of stage productions starring Billy Crudup, Carey Mulligan, Judith Light, John Lithgow, Patti Smith, Billy Crystal, and more.

The True West audio will be globally released on 4 April exclusively from Audible and you can pre-order it now.

The show itself is running at the Vaudeville Theatre until 23 February 2019.

We are so sorry that in these testing and difficult times you are not able to enjoy the show you have booked for and hope the following helps clarify next steps in respect of your tickets .

There is nothing that you need to do if your performance has been cancelled, but we do ask for your patience.

If you have booked directly with the theatre or show website for an affected performance, please be assured that they will contact you directly to arrange an exchange for a later date, a credit note/voucher or a refund. If you have booked via a ticket agent they will also be in contact with you directly.

We are processing in strict date order of performance, so you are likely to be contacted after the date you were due to go to the theatre. However, we want to reassure you that you will be contacted, and your order will be processed, but please do bear with us.

We’d like to thank everyone who has been patient and kind in dealing with their ticket providers so far and we are sorry that we cannot process your order as quickly as we would like.

Please be reassured that if we have to cancel future performances you will be directly contacted by your theatre or ticket provider.

We look forward to welcoming you back into our theatres as soon as we are allowed to resume performances. In the meantime stay safe and healthy.
