The Comedy About a Bank Robbery

The Comedy About a Bank Robbery is from Mischief Theatre, who created The Play That Goes Wrong and other ‘play with a play’ comedies.

Co-writer Jonathan Sayer said: “There’s a huge difference between ‘Bank’ and our other shows in the fact that Bank is not a ‘play within a play’.

“You can still expect an incredibly high gag rate, huge stunts like the previous shows, all intertwined with some Marx Brothers patter and also lovely singing and bits of acrobatics. It’s a much more ambitious piece! And then of course as well it has a big storyline to it, so you really fall in love with the characters and follow their journey.”

The Comedy About a Bank Robbery is at the Lyceum, Sheffield this week until Saturday (June 1). Box office: www.sheffieldtheatres.co,uk
