The Cult is based on a true story of love and power, set against a backdrop of opium dens and the sexual freedom that came with living in bombed-out 1917 London.

Rightwing MP, Pemberton Billing became obsessed with an erotic dancer, Maud Allan, as she did the infamous Dance of Salome on the London stage.

When she rejected his advances, and hearing of her lesbian love affair with the Prime Minister's wife, Pemberton Billing set out on a course of revenge to destroy gays and lesbians that nearly brought down the British government. 


The Cult is an epic first world war film in development; first draft script written by Becky Sharpe.
