The Show
Written in the style of a 50's Hollywood Comedy, the founders of the Mischief Theatre group, Henry Lewis, Henry Shields and Jonathan Sayer, all portray standout roles in this imaginative sitcom. When Mitch Ruscitti (Shields) escapes from jail with the help from corrupt prison guard Cooper (Tannahill), both head towards Minneapolis to rob an enormous diamond from a sleepy suburban bank, which is ran by Robin Freeboys (Lewis) and his superannuated intern Warren Slax (Sayer). Freeboys' cunning daughter Caprice (Russell), joins the heist as Mitch's love interest, yet soon finds herself falling for the overbearing cashier's (Wallinger) pick-pocket son Sam (Hearn). Full of hysterical one-liners that come thick and fast throughout, the unrelenting tempo of this show will leave audiences in uproar.

History of The Comedy About A Bank Robbery
The Comedy About a Bank Robbery is the third show to come from the Mischief Theatre group. Following in the footsteps of its predecessors, 'The Play That Goes Wrong' and 'Peter Pan Goes Wrong', this hilariously outrageous comedy took its debut in London's Criterion Theatre this April. If the success of the groups previous shows are anything to go by, there is no doubt this show will continue way past its official end date of April 2017.
