CHICAGO – Titties Are Coming. Trouble is brewing in the busty kingdom of Breasteros. When the honorable Lord Ned Stark-Naked is called to the capital to help his king defend the Glitter Throne from a sexy threat to the east, he enters a world of scandalous intrigue. Join Ned as he encounters as many of your favorite characters as we could conceivably fit into an hour-long show – incestuous twins, an irresistible horselord, the only bastard hot enough to melt the ice at the Wall, and of course, dancing direwolves. Ned soons learns there’s only one way to survive in Breasteros: when you play the Game of Thongs…you strip or you die.

Ages 18 and over only. Duration: approximately 60 minutes.
Written by GTB burlesquer Polly Pom Poms, who auditioned for a GTB show on a whim, “The Game of Thongs: A Game of Thrones Burlesque” is a date with destiny: “From the very first moment I knew I wanted to write a Game of Thrones show. I quickly fell in love with the company and its unique style of smart, sexy, funny burlesque. Nobody else does what Gorilla Tango does. I have been a Game of Thrones fan, however, for far longer than I’ve been a burlesque dancer. I’m the kind of pre-HBO (although I love the show as well!) Song Ice and Fire superfan with a closet full of Targaryen tee-shirts. I woke up one morning with one word burning in my mind – Breasteros – and from there, the script was born.”
The author of three young adult novels published under a different name, Polly continues, “People have asked me how you can possibly make Game of Thrones more naked? You can’t, really. But you can make Joffrey dance to Rihanna. And that, I think, is exactly what the world of Ice and Fire has been waiting for.”
