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!

    Hi,my partner booked this show for me as a birthday present.Im widely regarded by friends and family as something of a victor meldrew. So I didn't have high hopes.Must say that I haven`t laughed so much in a long time.Words like outstanding,brilliant and excellent come to mind in describing this play and its actors .However I do think that it anyone below the age of sixteen should not be allowed to see it. Your still chuckling.Chris
