  • Dreadful - do not bother!

    14 January 2019

    The first half was relatively interesting; however, the second half was appalling - dreadful; enter the mother into the scene and everything lost it's meaning. It was a complete shambles. We think that the audience were only clapping with joy that it was finally over. Save your money, and see Everyone's Talking about Jamie! The mother in the play couldn't work out what accent she should have and was just lost in translation.

  • Confused and disappointed

    13 January 2019

    Both my friend and I were confused with the storyline. At times the audience laughed at some points in the performance and we did not understand if this was intentional. We were also left totally baffled with the ending and had to Google feedback after the show to try and find an explanation

  • Outstanding Two-hander

    13 January 2019

    Sam Shepard's plays are typically intense - often with a family focus- and True West is no different. Kit Harrington and Johnny Flynn provide perfect character fits as the brothers who have little in common whose relationship is always on the edge. A very compelling performance.

  • True West

    13 January 2019

    A very gripping play and excellent performances. The play builds momentum into the finale and the set was brilliant. Great to see Kit Harington in another role and on the stage, although he looked very different from Jon Snow which was disturbing!
