Plotters have been assembled, as the full cast is announced for the world premiere of Treason

We are delighted to announce that the hotly anticipated World Premiere production of Treason, created by Ricky Allan, will embark on its debut UK tour this October to Edinburgh, Sheffield, London, with the tour ending on 25 November in Dartford.

A historic tale of division, religious persecution, and brutality, ending in an ambitious yet fateful plot to bring down both the monarchy and the government, Treason the Musical is set to blow you away 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. After an incredible two-year journey with an online concert streamed worldwide in 2021 and two sold-out concerts at Theatre Royal Drury Lane, 2023 is set to be the most explosive year yet for Treason the Musical.

The plot now thickens as casting for the autumn tour is now complete, led by Sam Ferriday (The Cher Show, Jersey Boys) as Thomas Percy and Oscar Conlon-Morrey (Mother Goose, Only Fools And Horses) as Robert Cecil.

Joining them as our Plotters are Gabriel Akamo as Fawkes, Kyle Cox as Jack Wright, Lewis Edgar as Little Wintour, Connor Jones as Robert Catesby and Alfie Richards as Big Wintour. Playing “The Eyes”, the ensemble is comprised of Femi Akinfolarin, Filippo Coffano, Megan Curley, Elena Gyasi, Naomi Katiyo, Louis Makrodt and Dan Gill making his professional stage debut. They will be joining the previously announced Nicole Raquel Dennis in the pivotal role of Martha Percy, Joe McFadden swapping his Strictly crown for that of King James and Emilie Louise Israel  & Anne Vaux, re-joining the Plot from the Theatre Royal Drury Lane Treason concerts last year.

You do not want to miss the Plotters and their world of love, secrecy and revolution in this new British musical that ‘absolutely rocks’ and ‘shines iridescent in its music’ (Guardian).
