Game Of Thrones Stage Show - What Do We Know About It?

Where are all the fans of Game of Thrones? 

George R.R. Martin, the author of Games of Thrones, is now developing a new Broadway-bound stage play reported by Hollywood Reporter! The first show is expected to launch in 2023.

The play will be centred on Westeros history take place 16 years before his first book, the Game of Thrones (affiliate link). The story will take place during the Great Tourney at Harrenhal, a 10-day-long contest (the biggest competition in the history of Westeros). 

Westeros is a continent located in the far west of the known world. It is separated from the continent of Essos by a strip of water known as the Narrow Sea. Most of the action in Game of Thrones takes place in Westeros.

“The play will for the first time take audiences deeper behind the scenes of a landmark event that previously was shrouded in mystery,” reads the play’s official description.

It will include most of the "iconic" characters from the new series. While no specific figures were mentioned, the Entertainment reported the mention of the younger version of Ned Stark, his sister Lyanna, Jaime Lannister, Lord Robert Baratheon, Prince Rhaegar Targaryen, Prince Oberyn Martell and Ser Barristan Selmy. 

At the end of the event, Rhaegar declared his love for Lyanna.

"The seeds of war are often planted in times of peace," Martin said in a  statement. "Few in Westeros knew the carnage to come when highborn and smallfolk alike gathered at Harrenhal to watch the finest knights of the realm compete in a great tourney during the Year of the False Spring. It is a tourney oft referred to during HBO's Game of Thrones, and in my novels, A Song of Ice And Fire (affiliated link)… and now, at last, we can tell the whole story… on the stage.

According to Martin, the goal is to bring the Game of Thrones to Broadway in New York City, the West End in London and Australia.

The play is from producers Simon Painter and Tim Lawson (The Illusionists), in partnership with Kilburn Live, and will have a story by Martin, who is working alongside award-winning playwright Duncan MacMillan (1984) and acclaimed director Dominic Cooke (The Courier).
