The Comedy About A Bank Robbery

The comedy masterminds behind five-star hits The Play That Goes Wrong (Olivier Award for Best New Comedy) and Peter Pan Goes Wrong, return to the West End with their latest lung-bustingly funny creation: The Comedy About A Bank Robbery.

Welcome to Minneapolis, 1958, and the Minneapolis City Bank. Now under the gruff and rather irreverent management of Robin Freeboys, the Bank is entrusted with a priceless diamond by a Hungarian prince. However, when the jewel catches the eye of mean-spirited jailbird Mitch, he teams up with corrupt guard Cooper and Freeboys’ money-hungry daughter Candice, intent on separating the Bank from its most precious deposit.

Mischief Theatre’s new play, written by Henry Lewis, Jonathan Sayer and Henry Shields, is already being called the funniest show in London. Fast-paced and riotously hilarious, The Comedy About A Bank Robbery masterfully unites screw-ball comedy with real theatrical invention, and is guaranteed to have you rolling in the aisles.

    Laughed from start to finish. Great show. Where do they get the energy from and the quick fire dialogue is a joy. The theatre is small, full of charm and worth a visit just to embrace is atmosphere. Lovely lovely lovely.

    Absolutely hilarious: the whole audience was laughing out loud. I also recommend the "sister show" "The Play That Goes Wrong".

    My husband and I went to see The Comedy about a bank robbery and didn’t stop laughing from start to finish. This is pure comedy genius, the cast were high energy and hillarious. Go see it!
