Thrones! The Musical Parody (Thrones! The Musical Parody)

By | Published on Sunday 18 August 2019

Warning: this show contains spoilers. A lot of spoilers! It’s easy to see why ‘Thrones!’ has sold out at each Fringe since 2015. The plot revolves around a group of friends wanting to watch the last season on a friend’s massive TV. That friend hasn’t watched the show, however, hence the recap of the important elements to get her up to speed. ‘Thrones!’ is a crowd favourite for a reason – adroitly delivered musical theatre, with great gags at the expense of a well regarded series (prior to the last season, anyway). It pokes fun at those who elevate the books over the TV series, but given their suggested alternate endings, the last novels are really the only possible saviours of the series. 

Assembly George Square, until 25 Aug.
