5/11 – The Epic

Photography by Clare Park

It’s 1605 and the war on terror is going badly. A group of young religious militants has recruited an experienced fighter in the cause, Guy Fawkes, to strike at the heart of the English Government. But in a police state no-one can be trusted and their plot is going to be turned against the very people it was meant to save.

Commissioned to mark the four-hundredth anniversary of the Gunpowder Plot this incendiary thriller weaves together the lives of kings and terrorists, priests and spies in a production of epic proportions…

Alistair McGowan will be playing King James in a new play by Edward Kemp called 5/11 commissioned to mark the 400th anniversary of the Gunpowder Plot at the Chichester Festival Theatre (12 August – 8 September). Daniel Abelson will be playing me (not sure if he is handsome enough, but it is theatre, so you can imagine). You can get tickets and read more about the production here.

Stay tuned for more interesting quad-centennial developments…

Michael Crick on Safe Seats:

“In effect, new MPs are being elected day by day now, as, amid huge secrecy, small cabals of party bigwigs pick candidates for safe seats.”
