The Comedy About A Bank Robbery

The Mischief Theatre comedy play will enter its third year in the West End next year, extending until April 2019.

Tickets for the new booking period, which takes the show up to 7th April 2019, are now on sale. The show is running at London’s Criterion Theatre.

Synopsis: The Comedy About A Bank Robbery

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 Samson Ajewole (Cooper), Jenna Augen (Ruth Monaghan), Jack Baldwin (Officer Shuck), and Leonard Cook (Robin Freeboys). 

Samuel Fogell, Matt Hunt, Chris Leask and Peter McGovern are other confirmed cast members. 

The show is directed by Mark Bell with Nancy Zamit for Mischief Theatre, with set design by David Farley. 

A UK tour, too 

Following its continuing success in the West End, The Comedy About A Bank Robbery will also embark on a UK tour this summer.

The tour will open at Birmingham Repertory Theatre on 23rd August and will visit venues including Salford Quays’ The Lowry, Nottingham Theatre Royal, Plymouth Theatre Royal, Leeds Grand Theatre and Southampton Mayflower Theatre, among others.
