The Olivier Award-nominated play The Comedy About A Bank Robbery has extended its booking period at the Criterion Theatre, playing until 3rd November 2019, as well as announcing a new cast for its run.

Brought to the West End by Mischief Theatre, The Comedy About A Bank Robbery opened in 2016 and is set in a city bank in Minneapolis in 1958. In a town where nobody can be trusted, people try to bag the jewel for themselves. With an escaped convict, mistaken identities and love triangles, it isn't easy to get the goods that everyone wants.

The show will introduce a new cast from 18th December 2018. Those joining the cast are Julia Frith (Caprice Freeboys), Liam Jeavons (Mitch Ruscitti), Jack Whittle (Sam Monaghan) and Jean-Luke Worrell (Warren Slax).

On 15th January 2019, Gareth Tempest will take over the role of Mitch Ruscitti from Liam Jeavons while Emily Stott will take over the role of Caprice Freeboys from Julia Frith.

The cast continuing in their roles include Samson Ajewole (Cooper), Jenna Augen (Ruth Monaghan), Jack Baldwin (Officer Randal Shuck), Leonard Cook (Robin Freeboys) and Chris Leask (Everyone Else).

Mischief Theatre are also the creators behind The Play That Goes Wrong at the Duchess Theatre currently holding performances its 5th year. According to their official website, they appear to be planning a new major production Magic Goes Wrong based on a magic show.

The Comedy About A Bank Robbery is booking at the Criterion Theatre until 3rd November 2019.

The Comedy About A Bank Robbery tickets are available now.
