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.

    We booked the play not knowing what to expect ,however what a gem we were treated to ,from the opening exchange between the prison officer's to the final outcome of the robbery this play was encapsulating .You literally couldn't miss a moment as the action and laugh's came thick and fast .If ever you want to cheer yourself up and watch a well played out play then The comedy about a bank robbery is for everyone .

  • Technical and comedy genius!

    19 January 2018

    Our 12 year old decided on this play while we were in London on the basis of the hoarding, so we went with no real expectations or prior knowledge. In his words it was hilarious. In ours, we agree with him. But as well as the comedy, the technical aspects were superb (no spoilers) including the sets, the rapid changes, and the timing. Hard to say what stood out, but the one person/three person fight was one highlight of many. My main concern was that people may fall out of their seats with laughing.
