Based on the hit BBC TV show that entertained millions of viewers over four successful series.
The Syndicate is a new stage play by Kay Mellor that follows five supermarket employees whose lottery syndicate numbers come in, just as their jobs and livelihoods are under threat, starring Emmerdale’s Samantha Giles, Coronation Street’s Brooke Vincent and TV favourite Gaynor Faye!

Will a share of the jackpot make their future dreams come true, or their nightmares a reality? One thing’s for certain, the win of a lifetime will change the lives, loves and relationships of the syndicate members….. for ever.

Written by the iconic Kay Mellor and directed by Gaynor Faye, this moving comedy drama of love, joy, secrets and betrayal is based on the first TV series of The Syndicate and marks the world premiere of Kay Mellor’s final stage play, following on from the huge success of her other stage adaptations of Band of Gold and Fat Friends.  

The mother/daughter duo have collaborated on multiple writing and directing projects, with The Syndicate marking the directorial debut for Gaynor and honouring the extraordinary talents of her mother, one of Britain’s most successful writers and Kay’s unparalleled ability to make us laugh, cry and entertain us with her wonderful characters and stories.
