Leave your sword for Game of Thrones parody

Game of Thrones is one of the biggest TV shows in the world, and a musical parody is coming to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

Following three total sell-out years – with extra shows included – and a five star sell-out run at this year’s Adelaide Fringe, alongside sell-out shows in LA and Chicago, Thrones!, the smash-hit must-see show of the Fringe is back, bigger and badder than ever with a prime slot in the 500 capacity George Square Theatre.

With no Game of Thrones on TV this year, the team behind musical improvisation sensation Baby Wants Candy will guarantee fans’ fix of fantasy, satiate their desire for violence, and provide their year’s supply of sweltering sex scenes and silliness in this even further extended version of this acclaimed musical parody phenomenon.

Cramming all seven aired series into 75 minutes, the talented cast sing and dance their way through their own warped idea of Westeros and their own hilarious version of the popular series’ plots and twists, with a few extra of their own thrown in for mirthful measure.

When you play the Game of Thrones, you win or die… or just enjoy the best hour of your life!
