‘Game of Thrones’ confirms theatre adaptation for 2023
A theatre adaptation of ‘Game of Thrones’ is officially in the works.
The stage play produced by British playwright Duncan MacMillan and directed Dominic Cooke, will reportedly center on a gathering set a decade before the events in the HBO hit series based on George RR Martin‘s novels.
Reacting to the news, Martin revealed that he and the show’s producer are having a great time uncovering the power struggles in the fictional Westeros.
“Duncan MacMillan and I are having a great time digging into the dynastic power struggles at the heart of George’s extraordinary imaginative world – and he has been hugely generous and supportive towards both of us.”
“The production will boast a story centered on 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,” a statement revealed.
According to reports, some of the show’s most popular characters will make appearances in the play set for a 2023 Broadway and West End debut.
The latest announcement comes shortly after news of Martin’s new five-year deal to develop more TV shows for HBO made headlines.
