THE COMEDY ABOUT A BANK ROBBERY Extends Booking Until April 2018

Due to continued high demand, the critically acclaimed and Olivier Award nominated The Comedy About a Bank Robbery marks its first birthday in the West End by announcing a further extension until 1 April 2018. The extension is the next cause for celebration for Mischief Theatre, who are thrilled to receive their third successive nomination for the Olivier Award for Best New Comedy as the original company prepare to open on Broadway with The Play That Goes Wrong.

Mischief Theatre, the madcap team behind award-winning productions The Play That Goes Wrong and Peter Pan Goes Wrong, present their latest West End smash hit The Comedy About a Bank Robbery.

A priceless diamond has been entrusted to the city bank, but in a town where everyone's a crook and even security guards 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.

Book now for the hottest show in town. It'd be criminal to miss it!

Mischief Theatre was founded in 2008 by graduates of the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art. Starting as an improvised theatre group on the London and Edinburgh fringes, they have grown into one of the UK's leading theatre companies, winning the Olivier Award for Best New Comedy for The Play That Goes Wrong, and licensing their productions worldwide.

In December 2016, Mischief made their TV debut on the BBC with Peter Pan Goes Wrong (Olivier Award Nominee 2016) which has also just finished a West End run. The company is led by Henry Lewis, Artistic Director and Jonathan Sayer, Company Director.
