About

Originally written and performed in 1950, Emlyn Williams’s Accolade is a dark and chilling look at the price of success, the power of trial-by-media, and remains a remarkably relevant play in the current age of ‘cancel culture’.

Accolade examines the fine line between truth and lies, good and evil, and one man's past, present and future.

Bill Kenwright Ltd, together with Theatre Royal Windsor, are delighted to announce that Ayden Callaghan and Honeysuckle Weeks are to lead the cast in Emlyn Williams’s gripping drama Accolade, the first play in this year’s Sean Mathias season.

Ayden Callaghan is best known for his roles as Joe Roscoe (Hollyoaks), Miles De Souza (Emmerdale) and as Frank Farmer in last year’s UK tour of The Bodyguard The Musical.

Honeysuckle Weeks became a popular face on television playing Sam Stewart (Foyle’s War). She has just finished touring the UK in the role of Cora in Calendar Girls the Musical.

In Accolade, Ayden will play the protagonist Will Trenting, with Honeysuckle, his socially ambitious wife, Rona. Whilst Williams’s dark and sinister play originally stems back to 1950, the underlying tensions, coupled with the fragility of one’s personal reputation, make this play as relevant today as when it was first written.

Completing the cast are Jamie Hogarth (Albert), David Phelan (Thane Lampeter), Sarah Crowe (Marian Tillyard), Louis Holand (Ian), Gavin Fowler (Harold), Sarah Twomey (Phyllis), Narinder Samra (Daker) and Kayleigh Cooper (Parlour Maid).
