The Comedy About a Bank Robbery extends to 2017

Mischief Theatre Company's latest West End hit The Comedy About a Bank Robbery has extended its booking period at the Criterion Theatre to 23 April 2017.

The comedy opened officially in the West End on 21 April 2016 to excellent reviews: "The show is one long blast of laughter, ricocheting around the auditorium" (; "Thrillingly and daringly inventive" (Guardian); "Full of invention and surprises" (Radio Times).

Since opening, the show has already taken in more than £1million at the box office. The extension means that Mischief Theatre Company will soon have three productions running in the West End simultaneously, with The Play That Goes Wrong continuing to run at the Duchess Theatre, and Peter Pan Goes Wrong returning to the Apollo Theatre from 20 October to 29 January 2017.

"One enormous diamond, Eight incompetent crooks and a snoozing security guard. What could possibly go right?"

The Comedy About a Bank Robbery is written by Henry Lewis, Jonathan Sayer and Henry Shields who also star in the production alongside Jeremy Lloyd (Randall), Charlie Russell (Caprice), Greg Tannahill (Cooper), Nancy Wallinger (Ruth) and Chris Leask ('everyone else').

It is directed by Mark Bell in association with Mischief Theatre and features design by David Farley, costume by Roberto Surace, lighting by David Howe, additional lighting by Matt Leventhall, sound by Jon Fiber and musical direction & arrangements by Joey Hickman.
