Bill Kenwright Ltd Presents


Starring Sara Crowe | By Emlyn Williams | Directed by Sean Mathias


Behind the prestigious façade of a celebrated writer lies a web of deception and dark desires ready to unravel his carefully constructed life…

Step into the vibrant world of London’s intellectual elite, where the price of success is often too high to pay.

Accolade follows the life of a celebrated writer on the verge of receiving a much-coveted award for his work. A gripping tale of ambition, scandal, and the harsh realities that lie beneath the surface of success.

Starring Sara Crowe (Fallen Angels, Sheila's Island), Gavin Fowler (Merchant of Venice 1936, A Picture of Dorian Gray), Jamie Hogarth (Dom – The Play, MAMMA MIA!), David Phelan (Mission Impossible, Breakfast at Tiffany’s), Narinder Samra (Passenger, Happy Birthday Sunita), Sarah Twomey (Paddington in Peru, The Sandman), Kayleigh Cooper (A Christmas Carol, Wonka) and Alasdair Buchan (The Da Vinci Code, An Inspector Calls), with further casting to be announced.

Directed by Sean Mathias– previous productions include Frank and Percy, The Cherry Orchard, Alone Together and the recent filmed adaptation of Hamlet starring Ian McKellen.  

With razor-sharp dialogue, poignant moments, and unexpected twists at every turn, Accolade grips your heart and mind, forcing you to examine the fine line between truth and lies.

Originally written in the 1950s, Emlyn Williams’ play remains remarkably relevant nearly 75 years later - this dark and chilling look about the price of success and trial-by-media examines the fine line between truth and lies, good and evil, and one’s past and future.
