Why See The Comedy About A Bank Robbery?
mischief theatre get criminal!
Not content with dominating the West End with their mega-hit madcap romp The Play That Goes Wrong, Olivier Award-winning Mischief Theatre brings us a brand new show, The Comedy About A Bank Robbery, dispelling any myths that they may be branching out into drama anytime soon.
Upping the stakes from their attempt to stage a theatrical masterpiece, eight hapless characters are now prepped with trying to steal a priceless diamond from under the nose of a sleepy security guard. Will they pull off the heist? There's only one way to find out!
Full of pranks, slapstick and heart, Mischief Theatre are one of the UK's most prestigious comedy troupes working today, continually presenting laugh-out-loud theatre for new audiences and the 'seasoned' theatregoer. Don't miss their newest foray at The Criterion this Spring!
