Direct from sold out shows in London’s West End, the critically-acclaimed Game of Thrones parody Graeme of Thrones is heading to Brisbane in 2016 with 10 hilarious shows from November 30 to December 11 at Brisbane Powerhouse, as part of Wonderland festival.
With shows across two weeks, Graeme of Thrones tells the story of Graeme. Unhappy with how his favourite fantasy series was realised for TV, Graeme is determined to take the international phenomenon that is Game of Thrones to the stage.
He doesn’t quite have the same budget, or as many cast members — but he’s sure George RR Martin would approve, and that’s all that matters.
Directed by Sam Bailey and created by a team of some of the UK’s top comedy writers including Toby Park, Andrew Doyle, Dan Evans and Jon Brittain, Graeme of Thrones promises to be a treat for fans and an introduction for the unenlightened as it takes audiences on a rollercoaster ride of beheadings, incest and war.
Writer and BAFTA winner Jon Brittain says, “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!).”
Catch the hilarious parody fresh from London before the inevitable lawsuit.
