One enormous diamond, six incompetent crooks and a snoozing security guard. What could possibly go right?

“Mischief Theatre are the clever folks who took The Play That Goes Wrong from a tiny fringe show to a huge international success. They've got a few new shows coming to the West End this year (Groan Ups & Magic Goes Wrong) but if you haven't caught The Comedy About a Bank Robbery yet then you really should check it out. It's absolutely hilarious in a classic British slapstick kind of way. A real gem.”


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?

Book now for this dynamite comedy. It would be criminal to miss it!

The Comedy About A Bank Robbery is presented by Mischief Theatre, the creators of the smash-hit, Olivier Award-winning show The Play That Goes Wrong.
