The Comedy About A Bank RobberyDuration 2h20

Criterion Theatre, Piccadilly Circus, London, United Kingdom, SW1Y 4XA

From the creators of The Play That Goes Wrong comes The Comedy About A Bank Robbery, the Olivier Award-nominated West End comedy about one enormous diamond, eight incompetent crooks and a snoozing security guard. What could possibly go right?

A priceless diamond has been entrusted to the city bank, but in a town where everyone’s a crook and even seagulls can’t be trusted, what could possibly go wrong? Delivering swag loads of laughter, Ocean’s Eleven meets the Marx Brothers in this dynamite new comedy. 

It’d be criminal to miss it!

The Comedy About A Bank Robbery is created by Mischief Theatre and written by Henry Lewis, Jonathan Sayer and Henry Shields, the Olivier-winning team behind The Play That Goes Wrong and Peter Pan Goes Wrong.

Suitable for ages 11+.
