The Comedy About A Bank Robbery at the Criterion Theatre

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!

Written by and starring the Mischief Theatre Company who brought you the 2015 Olivier award-winning Best New Comedy The Play That Goes Wrong and Peter Pan Goes Wrong, book now, to be entertained by their unique brand of humour in this hilarious show. It would be criminal to miss it.

The Comedy About A Bank Robbery runs until 4 November 2018 at the Criterion Theatre.


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?


The cast includes Henry Lewis as Mr Freeboys, Jonanthan Sayer as Warren, Henry Shields as Mitch, Jeremy Lloyd as Randall, Nancy Wallinger as Ruth, Charlie Russell as Caprice, Dave Hearn as Sam, Greg Tannahill as Cooper and Chris Leask as everyone else.


Created by Mischief Theatre Company. Directed by Marc Bell and members of Mischief Theatre Company.
