The Syndicate tells the story of five supermarket workers whose lottery syndicate numbers come in, just as their jobs and livelihoods are under threat. The win of a lifetime will change the lives, loves and relationships of the syndicate members forever.

Glasgow Times:

Faye will be joined by her son, Oliver Anthony, who will make his stage acting debut in the role of Jamie. Oliver also featured in tv shows like Fat Friends and the award-winning My left Nut. 

The cast also includes Samantha Giles and Brooke Vincent, as well as Rosa Coduri-Fulford, Jade Golding, William Ilkley, Jerome Ngonadi, Benedict Shaw and Connor James-Ryan.

The Syndicate is produced by Rollem and Josh Andrews Productions in association with JAS Theatricals. 

Glasgow Times:

Gaynor Faye said: “I’m thrilled to be joining Brooke Vincent, Samantha Giles and the rest of this stellar cast on stage. The Syndicate is very close to my heart for so many reasons and it’s fitting that this production is a real family affair, as we welcome Oliver to the company too. I know that he will make an amazing addition to the cast.

"It is extremely special to be a part of this new theatrical version of The Syndicate and one which my mum was really excited to stage. Having acted in the last series on TV, when she asked me to assist her on directing the show – I jumped at it. Now, it has become my first solo directing role and whilst I am so sad not to be doing it with her, I am also very proud and excited to bring mum’s vision to the fore.

"Josh Andrews is a fantastic producer who I’ve worked with on several shows and with a fabulous creative team and, of course, an incredible script – we’re going to reach for the stars and make mum’s wish come true - bringing another Kay Mellor classic to theatres across the country.”

Oliver Anthony added: “Having acted in series four of The Syndicate TV show and worked with my grandmother, playing the role of Jamie, in development workshops of the play, I’m chuffed to bits to be making my stage acting debut alongside my mum in my grandmother’s final play.

"This production is in honour of her and all she achieved and I’m really looking forward to getting stuck into the character of Jamie and hopefully doing her proud."
