About the show

Olivier Award-winning company Mischief Theatre secure their monopoly of the West End, with side-splitting comedy The Comedy About A Bank Robbery, which plays at the Criterion Theatre. Building on the formula that won them the 2015 Olivier Award for Best New Comedy, the company moves from theatrical masterpieces (The Play That Goes Wrong, Peter Pan Goes Wrong) to criminal masterminds.

Unfortunately, these criminals have a lot to learn! The Comedy About A Bank Robbery sees eight utterly incompetent would-be diamond thieves as they attempt to outwit a sleepy security guard and dodge obstacles that appear left, right and centre! Following in the footsteps of The Pink Panther and The Ladykillers, Mischief Theatre turn this haphazard tale into perfect chaos, with a blend of slapstick, pranks, and plenty of laugh out loud moments.

The Comedy About A Bank Robbery is written by Mischief Theatre members Henry Lewis, Jonathan Sayer and Henry Shields. The company was first formed in 2008 by LAMDA graduates, and after years of touring the UK and Europe, hit the West End with The Play That Goes Wrong, which later transferred to Broadway, Hong Kong and New Zealand. Critically acclaimed for their productions, which are perfectly crafted with relentless mishaps, The Comedy About A Bank Robbery guarantees giggles for even the most jaded theatre-goer.

Casting for the London production includes Sean Kearns as Robin Freeboys, Jean-Luke Worrell as Warren Slax, Gareth Tempest as Mitch Ruscitti, Jack Whittle as Sam Monaghan, Emily Stott as Caprice Freeboys, Tania Mathurin as Ruth Monaghan, Jeremy Lloyd as Officer Shuck, Laurence Pears as Neil Cooper and Chris Leask as Everyone Else. Understudies include Paula Kay, Mike Bodie, Niall Ransome and Lydia Fraser.

The Comedy About A Bank Robbery continues to play to packed-out houses at the Criterion Theatre, London.
