TREASON THE MUSICAL Takes Autumn Tour to Edinburgh, Sheffield and London

This Autumn will see the highly anticipated British musical premiere its first full production in select theatres across the UK. Kicking off with a bang on 25 October at the Festival Theatre, Edinburgh, Treason will continue to Sheffield Lyceum Theatre on 31 October and finally explode into London's Alexandra Palace from 08 - 18 November.

Treason the Musical is an historic tale of division, religious persecution, and brutality, ending in an ambitious yet fateful plot to bring down both the monarchy and the government.

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.

Garnering a global audience following its streamed Cadogan Hall concert in 2021 and two subsequent EPs on streaming platforms, last August saw the musical take to the stage in a 'WhatsOnStage' award nominated concert, starring Carrie Hope Fletcher and Bradley Jaden, which sold out Theatre Royal Drury Lane twice.

Earlier this year, the album Lighting The Fuse: Sparks From Treason In Concert was released, featuring a 19-track selection from the show which captivated further audiences. In its first month the album has surpassed 100,000 streams.
