George R.R. Martin is co-writing a play that is a prequel to the 'A Song of Ice Fire' series. The play is about the Tourney at Harrenhall and will apparently feature a "young, shy Ned Stark, his rebellious sister Lyanna, cocky teenage Jaime Lannister, powerful Lord Robert Baratheon, lovestruck Prince Rhaegar Targaryen, dashing Prince Oberyn Martell and noble knight Ser Barristan Selmy".
George RR Martin: 'The seeds of war are often planted in times of peace ... [This] is a tourney oft referred during HBO's Game of Thrones, and in my novels … now, at last, we can tell the whole story... on the stage” https://t.co/3H56fodEUf— James Hibberd (@JamesHibberd) March 30, 2021
“The seeds of war are often planted in times of peace,” Martin said in a statement. “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 during HBO's Game of Thrones, and in my novels, A Song of Ice & Fire … and now, at last, we can tell the whole story... on the stage.”
