Giggles and chuckles, that’s what The Comedy About A Bank Robbery is all about. If you are planning to spend your evening laughing over hilarious jokes and acts, Criterion Theatre is the right place for you, where The Comedy About A Bank Robbery is making the audience roar in merriment.
This out and out amusing show is the brainchild and third production by Mischief Theatre. The first two productions, The play That Goes Wrong and Peter Pan Goes Wrong are already cherished by a large number of theatregoers. Written by Henry Lewis, Jonathan Sayer and Henry Shields of Mischief Theatre, The comedy About A Bank Robbery is set in the summer of 1958 when the Minneapolis City Bank has been given the responsibility of keeping a precious diamond safe. A nasty criminal is after that diamond and planning to steal it with the help of his girlfriend and associate.
The gut-busting show is directed by Mark Bell and first premiered officially in London’s West End on 21 April 2016. The comedy About A Bank Robbery’s design is by David Farley and costume design is by Roberto Surace. This exhilarating show was nominated for Best New Comedy at the 2017 Olivier Awards.
