New musical Treason announces live cast recording and plans for full production

New musical Treason has announced the release of a live cast recording and plans for a first full production.

Treason features a folk-pop score with music and lyrics by Ricky Allan and tells the story of the notorious gunpowder plot of 1605.

The show was previously streamed online during the pandemic before in-person concert performances at Cadogan Hall and more recently Theatre Royal Drury Lane in the West End.

A live audio recording for the West End concert will be released to stream on 10 February

Making up the cast on the album are Carrie Hope Fletcher (Martha Percy), Bradley Jaden (Thomas Percy), Simon-Anthony Rhoden (Robert Catesby), Les Dennis (Robert Cecil), Emilie Louise Israel (Eleanor Brooksby), Rebecca Lachance (Anne Vaux), Daniel Boys (King James), Cedric Neal (Earl of Northumberland), Waylon Jacobs (Jack Wright) and Adam Pearce (Thomas Wintour) with Debris Stevenson as the Narrator.

London Musical Theatre Orchestra accompany them to play the score.

The first fully staged production will follow this autumn from October, with exact dates and venue to be announced.

Ricky Allan (Music & Lyrics) said: “We’re immensely grateful to those who joined us for our two sold out Drury Lane shows, we hope that ‘Plotters’ from all around the world will enjoy listening to this latest offering and we can’t wait to welcome you to the fully staged show later this year!”
