Westeros to the West End: Shows to Cure the Game of Thrones Blues...

theatre is coming

Game of Thrones' seventh season (its shortest yet) is over, it looks like we might have to wait more than a year until season eight, and we're into the final four months of the year, so...


Luckily for you, there's a couple of London shows coming up which may be able to help cure that GoT withdrawal.

GoT Dance

Graeme of Thrones

No that's not a typo. The big budgets, the incredible special effects, the intricately designed costumes...Thrones fan Graeme has literally none of it.

This critically acclaimed comedy parody sees its central character as he tries to recreate his favourite fantasy saga on stage, even if he doesn't have the same budget as the TV show, or the number of cast members, or the performance skills required.

Created by a team of some of the UK's top comedy writers, including Andrew Doyle, Dan Evans, Toby Park and script consultant Jon Brittain, this "theatrical journey through the Seven Kingdoms" has already enjoyed huge success during its 2016-2017 World Tour.

Now it's coming back to the capital with John-Luke Roberts as Graeme, Ross Spaine as his best friend Paul and Nicola Lamont as Bryony, the girl Graeme used to fancy at school.

This 'unauthorised parody' of the hit HBO series opens at the Charing Cross Theatre for a limited run in from 30 September, with tickets available here.

Venus In Fur

The real, big budget Game of Thrones' own Margaery Tyrell is heading to the West End!

Natalie Dormer

Well, it's Natalie Dormer who played Margaery of course, but since her character's tragic death (we're still devastated tbh) at the end of Season 6, Dormer's been busy getting ready for Venus in Fur's West End premiere.

The play's an intoxicating dark comedy of desire, fantasy and the innate love of fur. A critically acclaimed Broadway smash hit, it follows enigmatic actress Vanda Jordan (Dormer) appearing unannounced for an audition with director Thomas Novachek.

She's determined to land the leading role in his new production, despite seeming wrong for the part, and over one evening in downtown Manhattan their charged meeting becomes a seductive dance to the end.

The show plays for a strictly limited nine week run at the Theatre Royal Haymarket from 6 October, and you can book here.

So, that's the huge hole that Game of Thrones has left in our lives filled for the next two months!

Just the extra 12 or so after that to go...*sobs*...
