Treason is an exciting new musical drama based on the notorious gunpowder plot of 1605. With a stunning score and lyrics by Ricky Allan, featuring a fusion of original folk and pop songs, this wonderful new musical tells one of the most intriguing tales in England’s history.
Remember, remember the 5th of November,
for its gunpowder, treason, and plot
We’re here to tell you the rest of the tale,
the one that history books forgot
Guy Fawkes remains an anonymous figure,
we have more to bring to the table
It’s time to meet the rest of the plotters,
in our fiery musical fable
