Dominating the West End with the ever-successful The Play That Goes Wrong and their festive hit Peter Pan Goes Wrong, Olivier Award winning Mischief Theatre bring their latest side-splitting farce to the West End. The Comedy About a Bank Robbery opened at the Criterion Theatre in April 2016 and is currently booking into 2017.

Directed by Mark Bell, the play is the typical story of a heist gone wrong, and promises to fully entertain audiences. Diverting from their usual disastrous attempts at staging a spectacular, The Comedy About a Bank Robbery follows eight inept criminals in their efforts to sneakily steal a huge diamond from under the nose of a slumbering security guard. Of course, they are met a multitude of mistakes, resulting in chaotic but hilarious consequences.

Created by and starring the masters behind Mischief Theatre, Henry Lewis, Jonathan Sayer and Henry Shields, The Comedy About a Bank Robbery is set to be the next hilarious West End hit. First formed in 2008 by LAMDA students, Mischief Theatre brings traditional slapstick back to the West End, with moments that follow suit of comic champions such as Laurel and Hardy. The Comedy About a Bank Robbery features design by David Farley and costume design by Roberto Surace.

With the original cast jetting off to perform The Play That Goes Wrong on Broadway, new casting includes Sean Kearns as Robin Freeboys, Mark Hammersley as Warren Slax, Gareth Tempest as Mitch Ruscitti, Steffan Lloyd-Evans as Sam Monaghan, Hannah Boyce as Caprice Freeboys, Tania Mathurin as Ruth Monaghan, Chris Pizzey as Officer Smitties, Miles Yekinni as Neil Cooper and Jeremy Lloyd as Everyone Else. The Comedy About a Bank Robbery is currently booking until the end of 2017.
