The Crown Jewels Tickets

Garrick Theatre

Al Murray stars as Charles II in this hilarious new comedy based on the most audacious royal heist the country has ever seen.

A criminally funny new comedy

An all-star cast led by Al Murray plans the mother of all heists in the West End this year! The Crown Jewels at the Garrick Theatre is a riotous new comedy based on a bizarre story from British history.

Charismatic Colonel Blood has always kept people on their toes, but his next plot is the most unpredictable one yet: he’s going to steal the Crown Jewels in plain sight. With a motley crew of accomplices by his side, he plans to pull off the biggest heist the country has ever seen… but Charles II can’t afford to have people handling his jewels, and he’s ready to fight back.

Inspired by the unbelievable 1671 plot to steal the Crown Jewels from the Tower of London, this delightful rogue of a plays stars Al Murray as Charles II, alongside Carrie Hope Fletcher, Joe Thomas, Mel Giedroyc and Neil Morrisey.

The Crown Jewels is written by Simon Nye, the BAFTA-nominated creator of The Durrells and Men Behaving Badly and directed by Olivier Award-winner Sean Foley (Upstart Crow; Spitting Image The Musical)

A funny play telling the true life story of the theft of the Crown Jewels. Al Murray plays the king and at times I found it turning into the Al Murray show with a good 20 mins of stand up from him but otherwise a nice way to learn the history of the Read more

I wasn't entirely sure what to expect not being a history buff and the first 10 mins was difficult to follow. However, my whole family were in stitches once the show got going and the first half left us definitely wanting more - especially as the aud Read more
