    Never been to the west end before, I thought that the comedy about a bank robbery was very funny especially the bit from the bedroom scene also the showing with mr threeboys hitting the poor man with the file and off the desk.All the cast played there parts well and it was very enjoyable. So well done everyone associated with this performance.
