The Comedy About A Bank Robbery

Mischief Theatre’s smash-and-grab hit The Comedy About A Bank Robbery is a fast, fabulous comedy caper and the funniest show in the West End!

Summer 1958. Minneapolis City Bank has been entrusted with a priceless diamond. An escaped convict is dead set on pocketing the gem with the help of his screwball sidekick, trickster girlfriend… and the maintenance man. With mistaken identities, love triangles and hidden agendas, even the most reputable can’t be trusted. In a town where everyone’s a crook, who will end up bagging the jewel?

Book now for this dynamite comedy. It would be criminal to miss it!

  • Genius

    9 March 2020

    My partner and I loved Mischief Theatre's other show, The Play that Goes Wrong and thought we'd see this too. It is sheer comic genius which is suitable for all ages. Some scenes, like the first scene in Caprice's bedroom had the whole theatre in fits of laughter. Highly recommend.

  • Bit of a let down

    23 February 2020

    I booked tickets to this show off the back of the play that went wrong which I loved. I was expecting a similar sort of slapstick. But to be honest this show was very slow to start. Laughed a little just before the interval and in the second half the scene in the aircon was good. Overall I felt a bit let down after enjoying their other show so much. I would not recommend.
