A stage adaptation of Game Of Thrones is in the works with hopes of runs on Broadway, in the West End and Australia.
Playwright Duncan MacMillan is to write the play, working alongside Game of Thrones author George R.R. Martin, with direction from Dominic Cooke.
George R.R. Martin said: “An amazing team has been assembled to tell the tale… 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.
“Working with them (back before the pandemic, when we could actually get together) has been a treat, and I am eager for our collaboration to resume. Our dream is to bring Westeros to Broadway, to the West End, to Australia and eventually, to a stage near you. It ought to be spectacular.”
MacMillan added: “I have such admiration for George’s world and his characters.
“His generosity and trust during this process has been incredible. Working on this play during lockdown has felt like a real privilege. I can’t wait until we can be back in a theatre to experience this together.”
A teaser for the play shares: “The play will for the first time take audiences deeper behind the scenes of a landmark event that previously was shrouded in mystery.
“Featuring many of the most iconic and well-known characters from the series, the production will boast a story centered around love, vengeance, madness and the dangers of dealing in prophecy, in the process revealing secrets and lies that have only been hinted at until now.”
The adaptation is slated to begin performances in 2023 with further details to be revealed.
