Former Game of Thrones star Jack Gleeson certainly has friends in high places.

Rock star Hozier and former Love/Hate actor Robert Sheehan have both gone to his new stage play.

Gleeson is currently starring in the play Bears in Space at the Soho Theatre in London.

The play is produced by Gleeson's theatre company Collapsing Horse Theatre, which he set up with former college class mate Aaron Heffernan.

The unusual play tells the story of "two bears in an intergalactic space ship".

While it has a quirky storyline, Misfits star Sheehan thought it was hilarious.

"I just watched Bears in Space, absolutely blinding show. Unendingly funny and bonkers. Lots of pee came out," he said afterwards.

Take me to Church singer Hozier made time to head out in London with the boys after the show.

The singer-songwriter is currently enjoying some down time before he tours the US from September, after which he'll start work on his hugely anticipated next album.
