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.

  • If Carlsberg did comedies

    22 June 2019

    We were all looking forward to the show as we heard it was excellent, and I can honestly say it excelled in every aspect, non stop fun and laughs from first line to last. My only complaint would be We’re going to have to go back and watch it again as we made ourselves miss a lot of it as we were laughing so much. Can’t wait to bring my kids to see this later In the year. And we will also be checking out there other show the play that went wrong. Well done mischief theatre!!!

  • Delightful Comedy

    19 June 2019

    I was pleasantly surprised with just how funny this comedy was to myself and the rest of the audience. Full of Dad type jokes and good old slapstick this is a very reasonably priced way to laugh away the stresses of everyday life in London. Thoroughly recommend to anyone looking to see something light hearted and cleverly performed.
