The piece follows a controversial cult leader who acquires an old ranch in a small southern American town, triggering escalating tensions with the local residents.

Joining Peacock, the cast includes Sophie-Rose Middleton as Cora, Emma Kingston as Maraliyn, Adam Robert Lewis as Terrance, Carrie Sutton as Marge, Sam Wells as Kirk, Anthony Selwyn as Turtle, Athena Collins as Afifa, Dianté Lodge as Travis, Cassius, and dance captain, Jordan Laviniere as Jimmy / Daxen, Chrissy Brooke as Doreen / Ivy, Deena Kapadia as Colleen / Acer, and Leesa Tulley as ensemble / first cover Cora, Marilyn, and Marge. Young performers Liliana Argenio and Isla Ithier will share the role of Thea, with Oscar Hubble portraying Joe.
