See The Comedy About A Bank Robbery at the Criterion Theatre
Mischief Theatre’s Olivier Award-nominated crime caper The Comedy About A Bank Robbery has been heralded by many critics as one of the funniest shows ever to hit the West End. Pick up your tickets to The Comedy About A Bank Robbery here at TickX.
The Comedy About A Bank Robbery is set in the summer of 1958 where Minneapolis City Bank has been trusted to watch over a priceless diamond. When an escaped convict catches wind of the jewel and begins hatching a plot to steal it for himself, he ropes in his screwball sidekick and his tricksy girlfriend for the ride… Oh, and three other people, including the maintenance man.
The Comedy About A Bank Robbery plays on all the classic comedy tropes: mistaken identities, love triangles, hidden agendas and more. With absolutely no one able to be trusted, it’s obvious that hilarity will ensue.
Written by Henry Lewis, Jonathan Sayer and Henry Shields, The Comedy About A Bank Robbery is the third show by Mischief Theatre to hit the West End, following The Play That Goes Wrong and Peter Pan Goes Wrong. The play began previews at the West End’s Criterion Theatre in 2016 and reviewed a nomination for Best New Comedy at the 2017 Olivier Awards.
Since then the show has made the Criterion Theatre its home and has even ventured further afield. A French-language adaptation of the play debuted in Paris in 2017 and opened at the Théâtre Le Palace in 2018. The Comedy About A Bank Robbery also enjoyed a UK tour from August 2018 to June 2019.
Full of raucous laughs at breakneck speed, you can be sure that The Comedy About A Bank Robbery will be a dynamite night out. Book your tickets for The Comedy About A Bank Robbery now - it’d be absolutely criminal to miss it!
