SPOILER ALERT: This comparison chart contains spoilers for both John Ford's 'Tis Pity She's a Whore and the HBO series Game of Thrones based on George R.R. Martin's Song of Ice and Fire books. Read at your own discretion.
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. Are you a fan of Game of Thrones? Then 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.
