Welcome to Highgarden, oasis of female leadership and sexual tolerance within a not-too-distant medieval patriarchy. A musical parody-prequel to HBO’s GAME OF THRONES, this one-act chamber piece tells the untold backstory of House Tyrell before the series begins. Of all the Great Houses of Westeros, House Tyrell is the only one led by a woman, Olenna Tyrell, who is busy grooming her grandchildren Loras and Margaery for greatness. Commenting on Margaery’s objectification, Loras’s double life as the closeted “Knight of Flowers” and Olenna’s role as resident battle-ax grandma, TYRELL imagines what these secondary characters were thinking all along.
