Mischief Theatre’s Olivier Award-nominated crime caper The Comedy About A Bank Robbery has been heralded by many critics as one of the funniest shows ever to hit the West End. Pick up your tickets to The Comedy About A Bank Robbery here at TickX. The Comedy About A Bank Robbery is set in the summer of 1958 where Minneapolis City Bank has been trusted to watch over a priceless diamond. When an escaped convict catches wind of the jewel and begins hatching a plot to steal it for himself, he ropes in his screwball sidekick and his tricksy girlfriend for the ride… Oh, and three other people, including the maintenance man. The Comedy About A Bank Robbery plays on all the classic comedy tropes: mistaken identities, love triangles, hidden agendas and more. With absolutely no one able to be trusted, it’s obvious that hilarity will ensue. Written by Henry Lewis, Jonathan Sayer and Henry Shields, The Comedy About A Bank Robbery is the third show by Mischief Theatre to hit the West End, following The Play That Goes Wrong and Peter Pan Goes Wrong. The play began previews at the West End’s Criterion Theatre in 2016 and reviewed a nomination for Best New Comedy at the 2017 Olivier Awards. Since then the show has made the Criterion Theatre its home and has even ventured further afield. A French-language adaptation of the play debuted in Paris in 2017 and opened at the Théâtre Le Palace in 2018. The Comedy About A Bank Robbery also enjoyed a UK tour from August 2018 to June 2019. Full of raucous laughs at breakneck speed, you can be sure that The Comedy About A Bank Robbery will be a dynamite night out. Book your tickets for The Comedy About A Bank Robbery now - it’d be absolutely criminal to miss it!

About

Anchored in the renowned West End district, the Criterion Theatre is one of London’s top ten oldest theatres. The building opened in 1874, showing manager HJ Byron’s An American Lady and WS Gilbert’s Topseyturveydom on its first night. Today, the Criterion is now chaired by Stephen Fry, and hosts many comedies and smaller plays. The theatre is built upon three levels with the lower stalls situated below stage level. As a listed building, it maintains its historic and authentic décor, where the close seating arrangements and small size give it an intimate feel and showcase its Victorian heritage. The building was originally designed to be a concert hall by little-known Thomas Verity, who beat out 14 other architects in a competition. During its design phase, the Criterion was decidedly changed to become the theatre it is today, but traces of its former plans can be seen in the list of composers’ names within the tiled staircase. With over a century of delivering a variety of shows, including ‘The Comedy About a Bank Robbery’, 'The 39 Steps' and 'The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged)', the Criterion has provided the stage for several well-known actors, such as Robert Morley and Prunella Scales. Its history involves surviving the Second World War, acting as a broadcasting studio for the BBC thanks to its underground location, and outliving decay and erosion with the help of several refurbishments aimed at protecting its original works.
