Kiri is a musical play centered around the lives of the members of a notorious gang of bank robbers. Led by Kiri, the gang flourishes on a spree of complex heists. That is until they capture the attention of a no-nonsense law enforcement officer who is determined to restore order.
The play’s stellar cast features super-talented actors and actresses.
