Cake combines rap and RnB with 18th century France to retell a story that sparked a revolution.
When Marie Antoinette married King Louis, her reputation was already tarnished by gossip. But when she is implicated in a crime to defraud the crown jewellers of a diamond necklace, it is not just her reputation at stake, but the monarchy and France itself.

MTFestUK is a yearly festival that promotes the best in new musical theatre. The two week long festival allows eight new and emerging pieces of musical theatre to be presented in a workshop setting in front of a live audience. The presentations therefore are by no means complete and actors will use scripts, limited props etc. This is a deliberate choice to allow the writing team the opportunity to work on the material before projects move into full production.
