A lonely Queen sits atop the Iron Throne, but her kingdom is under threat from all sides. The final fight between the Lannisters, Starks and Targaryens is about to go down and everyone will probably die – die laughing that is. Throne and Games – The Last Laugh is the final instalment in VTS’ parody trilogy that started in 2015.
Loosely based on HBO’s popular TV series, this improv laugh-letting features myriad unexpected plot twists – all suggested by the audience. No two performances can ever be the same because of this key element. Like its TV inspiration, the audience has no idea what to expect next, and, neither do the cast. VTS improvisers are master actors – creating the plot line, developing characters and dialogue all on the spot based on audience involvement and suggestions. It’s this unpredictability that adds to the comedy of every performance. Which of the characters will have the last laugh? Who knows? You’ll have to come and see for yourself to find out.

...Throne and Games provides you many moments of side-splitting hilarity and is more fun than a barrel full of dragons, that is, unless you happen to be in the barrel with them rolling around screaming 'Dracarys!'"
Despite my pitiful ignorance of all things GoT, I had a blast. I knew I would. For me, the magic of improv doesn’t rely on knowledge of a storyline. It revolves around the quick wit and razor-sharp responses of the extraordinary ensemble cast to the often wild and wacky suggestions of the audience."
...while a basic knowledge of the television series will be helpful, even the most casual of viewer will appreciate this often very funny homage to a show that will remain in our collective imaginations long after its final bloody blows."
...you don’t have to have seen even a single episode to be able to lose yourself in the hilarious comedy that the players bring to the stage... The artistic director at the beginning of the show shared that the space was transformed in just forty hours and I’ve got to say, it’s really impressive what was done in such a small timeframe."
