The Comedy About A Bank Robbery

Fans of the classic Hollywood bank robbery movies can rejoice as a new West End production brings similar action to the stage. The funny play pays homage to the old school thrillers while bringing an original plot. The Comedy About A Bank Robbery promises to be a joy to watch, enticing you to smile.

Mischief Theatre Company’s new comedy

After delighting theatregoers with plays such as Peter Pan Goes Wrong, The Play That Goes Wrong and many others, Mischief Theatre is back at it again. Formed by a group of students and graduates from LAMDA in 2008, Mischief quickly found success with its unique humorous productions. The rib-tickling comedies connected with critics and audiences alike. Two of its plays were adapted into television specials for BBC1.

The engaging plotlines

Set in the summer of 1958, the production revolves around an almost priceless gem and a group of prospective robbers determined to steal it, making a fortune in the process. A Hungarian Prince owns the gem and entrusts the diamond to the Minneapolis City Bank.

The robbers include wily women, an escaped convict and even a few corrupt prison guards.

The whole town is corrupted and trustworthy people are hard to come by. Can the group steal the jewel successfully or will some crook mess their well-laid plans? Mixing thrill and comedy, it is a joy to watch the talented cast act their hearts out.

Henry Lewis, Henry Shields and Jonathan Sayer’s writing is impeccable as ever, keeping the audience hooked and on the edge of their seats the whole time. On the other hand, the physical comedy and exceptional set pieces make you laugh out loud at several points of The Comedy About A Bank Robbery. Book your tickets now to catch a show at the Criterion Theatre this year.
