    “Sometimes I lie here looking at it - I dream in one instant Parliament bursts like a rotten fruit - spattering across the sky.”

    It’s 1605 and James I, fresh from Scotland, is now King of England, a country fractured between Catholic and Protestant. A group of young religious fanatics from all corners of England, joined by mercenary Guido Fawkes, plot to strike at the heart of Government with a cellar full of gunpowder beneath Westminster.

    This incendiary thriller weaves together the lives of kings and paupers, priests and spies, lovers and rivals in a heart-rending play of epic proportions, which interrogates how far would you go to defend your liberty?
