YASS! A New Game Of Thrones Production Is Coming To Broadway!

today1 April 2021


If you like me (or any GoT fans on that matter), you probably have been missing the world of magic and chaos that was Game of Thrones since its finale episode aired almost two years ago, and are eagerly awaiting one (of the many) prequel series to hit our screens. Well folks, we got some good news: a Game of Thrones stage production is in the works, and is set to open in 2023, and that’s not allβ€”Australia is among the choices to stage the potential stage adaptation.

George R.R. Martin, the author who brought the world of Westeros to life, announced on March 30, 2021, that he was working with playwright Duncan MacMillan and Follies director Dominic Cooke on the project, as reported by The Hollywood Reporter.

According to the publication, the teamβ€”which also includes producers Simon Painter and Tim Lawsonβ€”is aiming to debut productions in New York City, London’s West End and Australia. “Their knowledge and love of my world and characters has impressed me from the very first, and their plans for this production blew me away since the first time we met,” Martin said of his team.

And according to The Hollywood Reporter, the play is rumoured to be set during a defining moment in Westeros history, The Great Tourney at Harrenhal, a battle that took place just 16 years before the events in Game of Thrones. And yes, that means that some of the series’ beloved characters could be coming back to life on stage.

No characters have yet been officially confirmed. But, according to Martin’s previously published books, there are plenty of familiar faces who were at the Great Tourney, including a young Ned Stark, his sister Lyanna, a teenage Jamie Lannister (which, we’d love to see), Lord Robert Baratheon, Prince Rhaegar Targaryen, Prince Oberyn Martell and Ser Barristan Selmy.
