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.

  • Fantastic

    It is a long time since I watched a comedy/farce and it reminded me that I should go more often. The acting was brilliant, timing suberb and the ending excellent. I will definitely look for other plays by this Company.

    We took our son to see the show for his birthday at his request. Great evening, lots of laughs and very clever play with words and method acting linked together with some good music and a great singing voice.

    I thought this play was excellent, haven't laughed so much. The cast was amazing and I thought all the audience felt the same. The way the scenery was moved was so clever. A play you must see.
