Graeme of Thrones

 

Following sell-out shows in London’s West End, North America and Australia the comedy hit 'Graeme Of Thrones' returns to tour the UK in June 2017.


A treat for fans and an introduction for the unenlightened, 'Graeme Of Thrones' was created by a team of some of the UK’s top comedy writers and is an original parody on the international phenomenon that is 'Game Of Thrones'.


In this critically-acclaimed theatrical journey through the Seven Kingdoms, avid ‘Thrones’ fan Graeme just wants to recreate his favourite fantasy saga on stage.

He doesn’t quite have the same budget as the TV show, or as many cast members, or the performance skill required, but he’s sure George RR Martin would approve – and that’s what matters. However when news reaches him that an influential theatrical producer is in the building for the show, Graeme decides that this could be his big break - as long as nothing goes wrong…

Having started life in London’s West End, Graeme of Thrones has since been seen around the world with productions in Brisbane, Adelaide Perth, Chicago, Toronto and a tour across the USA.


In 2017 the show takes on a world tour giving Westeros fans everywhere the chance to see what led Time Out to describe the show as ‘a must for any Game Of Thrones fan’, what caused a woman to vomit into her handbag and why the show was banned from performing in Malaysia.

Reviews


“Funny, with spot-on gags and lo-fi props that wring so much silliness from George RR Martin’s fantasy adventure ... you’ll see the main characters deftly, daftly reimagined. There’s nudity (sort of), dragons (sort of), versions of Joffrey, Ned, Daenerys and Tyrion that get to the nub of their flaws. These are writers and performers who live on the more inventive edge of the comedy scene ... they deserve to be cherished."

The Times

“Stupidly enjoyable ... their comic timing is superb”

The Stage

“A roller coaster ride of beheadings, incest and war” The West Australian
“Obsessed with Game Of Thrones? This my… Jon-Snow-loving friends, is the show for you”

Cambridge Evening News

“The worst thing I’ve ever seen. I can’t believe I was the only person not laughing. Never again.”
