Full West End Cast For THE CROWN JEWELS Announced

The final casting for this summer's must-see West End comic caper, THE CROWN JEWELS which plays at the Garrick Theatre from Friday 7 July - Saturday 16 September ahead of regional autumn engagements has been announced. 

Penned by Simon Nye, this comedy is loosely based on the true story of one of British history's most audacious heist attempts. With a gang of misfits by his side, charismatic and unpredictable Colonel Blood is planning on stealing the Crown Jewels in plain sight. What could possibly go wrong?

Completing the cast of this raucous royal affair are:

  • Adonis Siddique as Wythe Edwards/Footman
  • Ryan Lane as William Smith/Footman
  • Kieran Brown as Footman
  • Emma Brown as Footman
  • Dedun Omole as Footman

They join the already announced stellar lineup of Al Murray, Mel Giedroyc, Carrie Hope Fletcher, Aidan McArdle, Neil Morrissey, Joe Thomas, and Tanvi Virmani. THE CROWN JEWELS will mark Al Murray's West End acting debut as King Charles II/Talbot Edwards.

The new comedy has been written by the BAFTA-nominated creator of ITV's The Durrells and BBC 1's Men Behaving Badly, Simon Nye. THE CROWN JEWELS is directed by multi-Olivier Award winner Sean Foley (Upstart Crow, The Ladykillers).

It would be a crime to miss it!
