Remember, remember, the 8th of November. That’s when Treason, a musical all about Guy Fawkes, will play its first full performance in London.

Treason will play at Alexandra Palace from 8 to 18 November, ending a three-stop nationwide tour.

The musical will explore the religious persecution and divisions that led up to attempts to blow up the Houses of Parliament and overthrow the government. Two Treason concerts took place at Theatre Royal Drury Lane in summer 2022, starring Carrie Hope Fletcher, Bradley Jaden, Cedric Neal, and Debris Stevenson.

Ricky Allan writes the original Treason book, music, and lyrics. A cast and further creative team will be announced at a later date.
