Rejoice with West End royalty at the world premiere of The Crown Jewels. Al Murray plays King Charles II in a historical comedy where being in charge isn’t always easy. The Crown Jewels tickets are available on London Theatre now.
Let’s set the scene. It’s 1671, and Colonel Blood is planning the greatest British heist of all time. He wants to steal the Crown Jewels of England. With the help of his conspirators, Blood finds himself in the Tower of London. He gets his hands on the crown, orb, and sceptre. However, Charles II can’t afford a royal scandal. Can the schemers achieve the unthinkable, or will the King get revenge?
The Crown Jewels play will be the royal event of the year. Sean Foley directs a septet of celebrated actors, comedians, and entertainers who come together to retell the story of a Restoration rascal. Al Murray plays Charles II, joined by Carrie Hope Fletcher, Mel Giedroyc, Joe Thomas, Neil Morrissey, Aidan McArdle, and Tanvi Virmani.
Where are the Crown Jewels kept?
The Crown Jewels are stored in the Jewel House at the Tower of London, a few miles away from the Garrick Theatre. The Crown Jewels — a collection boasting over 23,000 gemstones — were first stored and displayed at the Tower of London in 1661. Items including St Edward’s Crown, the Imperial State Crown, and Queen Mary’s Crown will be used in King Charles III’s coronation.
