About The Comedy about a Bank Robbery

The Comedy about a Bank Robbery is a Mischief Theatre production that has taken over The Criterion Theatre in London’s West End. The smash-and-grab play is a light-hearted and hilarious story about a town where everyone is a criminal. Receiving rave reviews everywhere, this play written by Henry Lewis, Jonathan Sayer and Henry Shields is set to be one of the best comedies in the West End.

The Story

Set in the summer of 1958, an invaluable diamond has been left in the hands of the Minneapolis City Bank, unfortunately, this diamond is in high demand. With an escaped convict on the loose, the fate of the gem doesn’t look too bright. With the help of his wacky sidekick, trickster girlfriend and anyone else he can persuade, the play follows a path of lies, cheats and mistaken identities. In a town where no one can be trusted, the outcome is uncertain.
