Mischief Theatre’s long-running heist hit The Comedy About a Bank Robbery has posted closing notices at the West End’s Criterion Theatre. It will finish on 3 May 2020, at the end of its current booking period, after a four-year run.
In The Comedy About a Bank Robbery, it’s summer 1958 at Minneapolis City Bank, which 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 current cast features Sean Carey (as Sam Monaghan), David Coomber (Neil Cooper), Julia Frith (Caprice Freeboys), George Hannigan (Everyone Else), Liam Jeavons (Mitch Ruscitti), Damian Lynch (Robin Freeboys), Killian Macardle (Officer Randal Chuck), Jon Trenchard (Warren Slax) and Ashley Tucker (Ruth Monaghan).
Mischief Theatre’s multi-award-winning The Play That Goes Wrong continues at the Duchess Theatre, where it recently celebrated its fifth birthday. And the company’s year-long residency at the Vaudeville Theatre continues with Magic Goes Wrong, just extended to 30 August 2020. Onscreen, Mischief’s six-part series The Goes Wrong Show is currently airing Fridays on BBC One.
4 years 💎 Over 2000 performances 💎 Countless laughs 💎
After years of robbing banks in London and across the country, our crooks will stage their final heist on 3 May 2020.
