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.

  • Excellent

    Excellent play, very funny and well acted. Holly Sumpton as Caprice and Sam Fogell as Sam were brilliant. The whole cast were great but they and Cooper stood out for me. Ths timing and the tricks were great. Also the Criterion is such a beautiful theatre and the staff were all very helpful,

    This was by the far the funniest and most enjoyable theatre experience I have ever had! I was laughing to the point there were tears streaming down my face. 1000% recommend to everyone. I left the theatre feeling so happy and still in fits of laughter.

  • Breathtakingly clever

    If you loved The Play that Goes Wrong, you will love this just as much. It is very different in its execution but breathtakingly clever in ways you won't expect. I took teenagers from 3 different countries and the humour was enjoyed by all. This should be an international success!

  • Incredible!

    This was my second home watching the play and it did not disappoint...I was convulsed with laughter throughout even though I knew what was going to happen. The acting was superb once again. I would definitely recommend it to anyone who is thinking of coming to see it. I had the added bonus of meeting a cast member outside and I congratulated him on his performance.
