Directed by The Play That Goes Wrong’s Mark Bell, the comedy is a typical tale of a heist gone wrong. Diverting from the Cornley Polytechnic Society’s disastrous attempts at staging well-known plays, Mischief Theatre present us with a new style of farce which promises to deliver the same amount of hilarity. Following eight inept criminal masterminds in their efforts to sneakily steal a very large diamond, plenty of mishaps are guaranteed, as the greedy group attempt to take it from under a sleeping security guard’s nose. A perfect blend of pranks, slapstick and side-splitting entertainment, The Comedy About a Bank Robbery promises an abundance of laugh-out-loud moments.
Conceived by and starring Mischief Theatre’s masterful trio Henry Lewis, Jonathan Sayer and Henry Shields, The Comedy About a Bank Robbery features the original members of The Play That Goes Wrong, including Dave Hearn, Charlie Russel, Nancy Wallinger, Chris Leask, Greg Tannahill and Jeremy Lloyd. David Farley designs what is sure to be another highly innovative set, working alongside lighting designer David Howe, costume designer Roberto Surace and sound designer Job Fiber.
Formed in 2008, critically acclaimed Mischief Theatre are notorious for bringing their relentless mishaps to the stage, completely taking over the West End. Their latest production promises some perfectly crafted mistakes that are sure to send the audience into fits of laughter. The Comedy About a Bank Robbery opened at the Criterion Theatre in March, quickly becoming one of the hottest tickets in town.
