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.

  • Absolutely brilliant

    23 April 2018

    We went to see this as a group comprising kids, teens, and mature adults. Everyone loved it. The outlandish story, clever writing, and amazing staging - mixed with a generous helping of good old slapstick made this a laugh-a-minute must-see comedy by Mischief Theatre. Would heartily recommend!

    A great play...well worth watching. Excellent performances by ALL members of the cast BUT particularly by the 3 main bank robbers... funny and acrobatic scenes were awesome.Only negative comment I have... some of the American accents were difficult to hear / decipher. THE PLAY THAT GOES WRONG was equally as good.. a fun way to spend an nevening.(be prepared to laugh out loud!!!)
