York Drama Plays the Game of Thrones with a Twist -
We all know the story: when the aging monarch of a Magical Kingdom (England) decides to split his empire between his three daughters, Cinderella, Belle, and the Snow Queen (who in no way resembles a copyrighted character), terrible tragedy ensues. Terrible, bloody, hilarious tragedy. Combine the gut-wrenching plot twists of Game of Thrones, the soul-numbing despair of Shakespearean tragedy, and oodles upon oodles of animated princesses fighting to the death. This adaptation of King Lear will leave you dying with laughter as the body count mounts. When you play the Game of Tiaras, you win or you die.
Game of Tiaras, plays at York High School’s Merle Baker Auditorium February 2nd – 4th at 7:30 and February 5th at 2:00. All tickets are $10.00. York students free with School ID.
Tickets available now at www.ticketpeak.com/yorkdrama or the theatre box office one hour before the show. Not recommended for very small children.
