TREASON! is a story about the love triangle that changed the course of the American Revolution. It is a story about defining loyalty, understanding trust, misunderstanding loyalty and defining trust. It is a story about love gone wrong- big time!

Everyone knows Benedict Arnold. The dictionary, in fact, defines “traitor” as “a Benedict Arnold”. Now, through dramatic acting and sixteen original compelling and whimsical songs, this historical fiction explores the other side of the story!

You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, if you knew the words, you’d sing along, and by the end you will know more about this nugget in American history than you were ever taught in school!

TREASON! is a new musical with story and lyrics by Camille Garro and music by Daniel Connors

Directed by Anna Smulowitz
