"Game of Thrones" is coming to the stage.

According to the BBC, a theater adaptation of the show is set to debut in the West End and on Broadway in 2023.

The story will depict a gathering more than a decade before the TV series's events and the George RR Martin's novels it is inspired by. Playwright Duncan MacMillan and director Dominic Cooke have signed on to bring the show to life. Some characters from the story that audiences are familiar with will be involved.

"The production will boast a story centered around love, vengeance, madness and the dangers of dealing in prophecy, in the process revealing secrets and lies that have only been hinted at until now," a statement said.

The stage show is set during a grand jousting tournament that helped set in motion the subsequent events.

"[It] ought to be spectacular," says George RR Martin. "The seeds of war are often planted in times of peace. Few in Westeros knew the carnage to come when highborn and smallfolk alike gathered at Harrenhal to watch the finest knights of the realm compete in a great tourney during the Year of the False Spring. It is a tourney oft referred to during HBO's 'Game of Thrones' and in my novels, 'A Song of Ice and Fire.' And now, at last, we can tell the whole story on the stage."

The team hopes to bring the show to multiple stages around the world. The announcement comes after the news Martin has signed a five-year deal to develop more TV shows for HBO.
