Take a unique and fun theatrical journey through the Seven Kingdoms with avid Game of Thrones super fan Graeme (Ali Brice) and cohorts ex-crush Briony (Libby Northedge) and best friend Paul (Mark Davison) as they attempt to impress a producer and show the world how everyone’s favourite sweary fantasy TV series should have been made!
Featuring a family tree wider than The Wall, as many grisly deaths as there are characters and some appropriately missing dragons, it’s a rollercoaster ride of beheadings, incest and war.
Created by a team of some of the UK’s top comedy writers, the world premiere of Graeme of Thrones at Leicester Square Theatre for 5 weeks from Tuesday December 8th 2015 – Sunday January 10 2016, is a wacky and wicked take on the international phenomenon that is Game Of Thrones. See it before the inevitable lawsuit!
Writer and BAFTA winner Jon Brittain said today: “Graeme of Thrones is a parody/farce/show-within-a-show/ loving-homage. It’s nice to be in a room where being an anally retentive fanboy is actually a good thing! The team are having a lovely time geeking out and discussing how ridiculous Ser Jorah and Littlefinger’s voices are, how Daenerys really should have double checked there was a no-nudity clause in her contract, and how Jon Snow really is incredibly boring (but so pretty!).”
Graeme of Thrones stars Ali Brice (creator of Fringe sensation Eric Meat) as Graeme, Libby Northedge (part of award-winning duo Twisted Loaf) as Bryony and Mark Davison (part of internet sketch trio The Exploding Heads) as Paul.
