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 loved the show! A very talented cast, great comic timing and fabulous vocals (and a splendid ad lib recovery when the moustache fell off!) Definitely recommend!

Pun loaded hilarity from the get go. Thematic jokes all the way through delivered by an energetic and talented cast. If you see one farce in your life - make it this one!

Having seen `The Play That Goes Wrong`, my girlfriend and I knew roughly what to expect coming into this theatre show. My goodness, we were bent over double repeatedly throughout the performance. The cast were great, the scene changes smooth, and the musical numbers fantastic. Definitely worth the watch

My grandson (now 8) saw 'The play that went wrong' and so wanted to see the Bank robbery that went wrong for his birthday treat. He and I were not disappointed. It was excellent enhanced by our chance to chat with a member of the cast as they were collecting for a charity well done
