Kit Harington is returning to the West End in the autumn after a two-year break.
The actor, will play a strait-laced Hollywood screenwriter in True West, by Sam Shepard, at the Vaudeville Theatre from November. Rising star Johnny Flynn will play his unstable elder brother. Previously Harington was in Doctor Faustus at the Duke of York’s.
The production will be directed by Matthew Dunster, who directed Martin McDonagh’s hit play Hangmen, which also starred Flynn.
Currently filming the final scenes of Game Of Thrones, he told the Daily Mail that his role of Jon Snow had “whipped away” his chance of a theatre career.
But he said he would miss the fantasy show: “I keep bursting into tears. We’ve all spent nine, nearly ten years together, and the final goodbye is more than a hug.”
