Amy Matysio and Jamie Cavanagh portrayed over 60 characters in the sci-fi mash-up between George R.R. Martin’s Game of Thrones and George Lucas’ Star Wars. The show had been work shopped for close to a year in Southern Canada but the Saturday showing in Yellowknife was the first time the play was performed in front of a live audience.

The parody featured a wide range of characters based off those seen in Lucas’ Star Wars series and Martin’s A Song Of Fire And Ice novels and featured a number of jokes that touched on celebrities such as the Kardashian family and Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.
