True West

‘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’ Variety 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.

Emilia

“A GLORIOUS BLAZE OF PASSION AND FURY… RICHLY FUNNY” (The Times).

1609. I AM EMILIA.

WRITER. WIFE. LOVER. MOTHER. MUSE.

400 years ago Emilia Bassano wanted her voice to be heard. It wasn’t. Could she have been the “Dark Lady” of Shakespeare’s sonnets? What of her own poems? Why was her story erased from history?

Emilia and her sisters reach out to us across the centuries with passion, fury, laughter and song. Listen to them. Let them inspire and unite us.

Celebrate women’s voices through the story of this trailblazing, forgotten woman.

Stand up and be counted.

2019. WE ARE EMILIA.

Shakespeare’s Globe’s “EXTRAORDINARILY ROUSING NEW PLAY” (The Independent) which met with “WHOOPS, CHEERS, BELLY LAUGHS, A STANDING OVATION” (Time Out), now explodes at the Vaudeville theatre. An all-female cast playing both hers and hims rouses “AUDIENCES INTO A PITCH OF FERVOUR”( The Guardian) in a “MAGNIFICENT PRODUCTION” (The Stage) filled with “WIT, FIERCE INTELLIGENCE AND HEADY INTENSITY” (The Times).

The original theatre on this site was designed by C J Phipps and opened on 16 April 1870. The theatre was subsequently reconstructed, to designs once again by C J Phipps, and reopened on 13 Janaury 1891. This theatre added the still existing four-storey high frontage in Portland stone. The theatre then closed on 7 November 1925 when the interior was completely reconstructed to designs by Robert Atkins (the auditorium was changed from a horseshoe shape to the current rectangle shape), reopening on 23 February 1926

The Vaudeville Theatre staged mostly revues in it's early days. On 5 August 1954 the musical "Salad Days" opened here having transferred from the Bristol Old Vic Theatre and stayed for 2,329 performances - becoming the longest running production in the history of the Vaudeville Theatre. Other productions here included Arnold Wesker's "Chips With Everything", Willy Russell's play "Shirley Valentine" with Pauline Collins, and more recently the Kander and Ebb musical "70, Girls, 70" with Dora Bryan and Simon Gray's play Hidden Laughter. History repeated itself when a revival of "Salad Days" opened here on 18 April 1996 with a cast that featured the cabaret duo Kit and The Widow. The production this time though only lasted 4 months, closing on 24 August 1996.
