Fantasy epic Game of Thrones has been brought to life in a surreal parody for the stage.

Graeme of Thrones features all the gore, sex and nonsense that would keep any Game Of Thrones fan happy.

It follows the story of Graeme, who is unhappy with how his beloved books were realised for the TV series and has taken it upon himself to show how the epic set in the world of Westeros should have unravelled.

He doesn't quite have the same budget as the series which was partially filmed in Ireland, or as many talented cast members, but he's sure series' author George RR Martin would approve.

Featuring a family tree wider than The Wall and more subplots than anyone can follow, it's an unauthorised parody of the international phenomenon.

The show, created by a team of some of the UK's top comedy writers, is being described as a rollercoaster ride of beheadings, incest and war.

The creative team for the show includes Toby Park and award-winning writer Jon Brittain. Park's physical comedy company Spymonkey has produced other projects including Mack & Mabel starring Michael Ball. Jon Brittain won a Bafta award for Margaret Thatcher Queen of Soho.

Graeme of Thrones will be in Dublin for one night at The Olympia Theatre in April. Tickets, costing €29 including booking fee, go on sale on January 29 via Ticketmaster.
