The Crown Jewels
Published by Nick Hern Books
Large Mixed Cast
It's 1671, and the charismatic and unpredictable Colonel Blood is planning the greatest heist of all time: stealing – in plain sight – the Crown Jewels from the Tower of London
With an audacious plan and a gang of misfits by his side, can he possibly pull it off?
And is King Charles II in any mood to have his crown jewels handled?
Based on the scarcely believable true story, Simon Nye's play The Crown Jewels is a riotous and uproarious royal affair
It will appeal to any amateur theatre company – monarchists and republicans alike – who want to get their hands on a royally funny caper to perform
