It’s been announced that THE COMEDY ABOUT A BANK ROBBERY will extend at London’s Criterion Theatre to November 2019.
Mischief Theatre’s production, written by Henry Lewis, Jonathan Sayer and Henry Shields, opened in the West End back in 2016. This success followed the company’s THE PLAY THAT GOES WRONG, a big hit in both the West End and on Broadway.
The production has also announced a new cast change from 18th December. Joining the company is Julia Frith as Caprice Freeboys, Liam Jeavons as Mitch Ruscitti, Jack Whittle as Sam Monaghan and Jean-Luke Worrell as Warren Slax. From 15th January 2019, Gareth Tempest as Mitch Ruscitti returns to the play, and Emily Stott takesover as Caprice Freeboys. Continuing in their their roles are Samson Ajewole as Cooper, Jenna Augen as Ruth Monaghan, Jack Baldwin as Officer Randal Shuck, Leonard Cook as Robin Freeboys and Chris Leask as Everyone Else.
THE COMEDY ABOUT A BANK ROBBERY is set in 1950s Minneapolis, USA. It follows an escaped convict intent on stealing a diamond from the City Bank with the help of his girlfriend. In typical Mischief Theatre fashion, the show heavily features slapstick and physical comedy.
The play spawned a UK tour that opened in Birmingham in August 2018. The UK tour runs concurrently with the London production.
THE COMEDY ABOUT A BANK ROBBERY is booking at the Criterion Theatre until 3rd November 2019. Tickets for the extension are on sale now.
