Graeme of ThronesA hilarious parody of Game of Thrones is set to have the audience in stitches when it comes to Gala next month.

Graeme of Thrones, which will be performed at Durham’s Gala Theatre on Monday 13 June, 7.30pm, is created by some of the UK’s top comedy writers and will promise Game of Thrones fans, and those who haven’t seen the show, tears of laughter.

This critically-acclaimed theatrical journey through the Seven Kingdoms comes direct from sold-out shows in London’s West End, and sees avid ‘Thrones’ fan Graeme wanting to recreate his favourite fantasy saga on stage.

He doesn’t quite have the same budget for the TV show, as many cast members, or the performance skill required, but he’s sure George RR Martin would approve – and that’s what matters.

But when news reaches Graeme that an influential theatrical producer is in the building, he decides that this could be his big break – as long as nothing goes wrong.

Robin Byers, Durham County Council’s service manager for place experience said: “Based on the popular series, Game of Thrones, I’m sure this show will quickly sell out at Gala as it has done elsewhere in the country.

“Fans of Game of Thrones are bound to love it, but with plenty of laughs, it will also appeal to those who haven’t yet seen the TV series.”

Tickets, priced at £18.50, are available by contacting the Gala Theatre Box Office on 03000 266 600, visiting in person at the venue or booking online at www.galadurham.co.uk.
