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.

  • Good Friday performance

    My husband and I had already seen the play that went wrong, which we loved, so the Bank Robbery has a lot to live up to. The split second timing was amazing (dialogue, action and scenery) . We found the first have very amusing; but the second half wasn’t quite as good. However nearly all the audience around us were laughing a lot, so it could just have been us!

  • Mixed comedy of errors

    15 April 2019

    Past reviewers have expressed differing opinions. If you go expecting a sequel to The Play that went wrong, you’ll have been misled. The play relies on innuendos supported by slapstick routines and smutty ‘comedy’ (which we can’t seem to do without these days). The 30% seat vacancies said it all - especially when the similarly timed showing of Wrong Play was almost at capacity. I think this was a step down the ladder - particularly listening to the comments of my fellow audience members as we left the theatre.
