Game of Whores
Forbidden love, callous murders, frantic bids for power, innocence shattered, impulsive actions with disastrous consequences, a rotten world falling to pieces at the slightest touch -- is this a 21st century fantasy series, or a 17th century tragedy? Both, as it turns out -- 'Tis Pity She's a Whore and Game of Thrones both explore some of the darkest twists of the human heart and the most depraved and desperate actions of our minds. The titillation of watching such egregious violations of societal taboos is as strong now as it was four hundred years ago. We've assembled a list of some of the greatest similariites between the shocking HBO series and John Ford's equally astonishing play, in our very own Game of Whores! Are you a fan of Game of Thrones? Then go check out Game of Whores, and join us at the Blackfriars Playhouse for 'Tis Pity She's a Whore and see the temptation and turmoil live instead of on a screen -- we're HD and 3D with no extra upcharge.
WARNING: The Game of Whores contains SERIOUS SPOILERS for both Game of Thrones and 'Tis Pity She's a Whore. Read at your own risk!
