If you have ever dreamt of having tea in London with the King of the North, aka Jon Snow, you’re in luck. The Game of Thrones actor Kit Harington, who enjoys relaxing and unwinding with a nice warm cup of tea, will fly the winner of an online drawing and a guest to London for tea at the invite-only Groucho Club® and a performance of True West on London’s West End, which will include a VIP backstage tour with Harrington after the show for an exclusive look at the costumes, props, and more.
To participate, fans need to visit omaze.com/kit before January 29 and donate $10. Omaze, an online fundraising platform, has partnered with Mencap to raise money to improve the lives of people with learning disabilities and their families.
Mencap was founded in 1946 by Judy Fryd, a mother of a child with a learning disability. The services offered by Mencap range from round-the-clock care to assistance with local leisure activities, guidance on employment and education, help for people with disabilities living independently for the first time, and advice on how to report crimes to the police.
Harington, 32, will return as Jon Snow for the eighth and final season of Game of Thrones. The eighth season will consist of only six episodes and feature original content not found in George R. R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire series, though it will adapt material Martin has revealed to the show’s creators about the upcoming novels in the series, The Winds of Winter and A Dream of Spring. Harrington married his Game of Thrones co-star Rose Leslie last June at Rayne Parish Church in Aberdeenshire, Scotland
True West, written by American playwright Sam Shepard in 1983, was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize for Drama. In the play, Harington stars as Austin, a Hollywood screenwriter with a wife and children. True West deals with the sibling rivalry between two estranged brothers who have reconnected. The play also stars South African singer and actor Johnny Flynn, who stars in the Netflix comedy Lovesick, and Genius, in which he plays a younger Albert Einstein.
