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.

  • Laugh out loud brilliant

    20 February 2018

    Mischief Theatre show they can handle a 'proper' farce . This is not the Play that Goes Wrong 2 but an adeptly plotted farce which combines elements of visual and verbal humour drawing on a range of traditions and skills, from verbal game play to visual sight gags to full on bedroom farce (trousers down!) The staging is superb , with some stunning set pieces which show why theatre beats cinema hands down in my book

    A great show from this company. Now seen Peter Pan goes wrong, a Christmas Carol goes wrong and the play that goes wrong. Well worth seeing this performance.

    My stomach muscles are still recovering from laughing so much. The actors were amazing with their antics and fast talk.
