Treason The Musical

Remember, remember the 5th of November…. 

Join us for the World Premiere of this explosive new musical about the notorious gunpowder plot of 1605 starring Nicole Raquel Dennis (Dreamgirls, The Voice semi-finalist) as Martha Percy and Joe McFadden (Strictly, The Crow Road) as James I of England (James VI of Scotland).

With stunning original folk and pop songs, this one-of-a-kind show tells one of the most intriguing tales in Britain’s history as it’s never been seen before. 

Treason explodes onto the stage this Autumn following an online concert streamed worldwide in 2021, two sold-out concerts at Theatre Royal Drury Lane in 2022 and a live album released this year, which has taken Spotify by storm.

You can now be the first to see the hotly anticipated full production of Treason created by Ricky Allan, as it embarks on its debut UK tour. 

Join the Plotters and their world of love, secrecy and revolution in this new British musical that ‘absolutely rocks’ and ‘shines iridescent in its music’ The Guardian

Listen to the soundtrack

You will hear the phrase “the British Hamilton” and with good reason

All that Dazzles
