They’ve been roaming around the country, spectacularly failing to grab precious diamonds here, there and everywhere. And today, it’s been announced that the UK touring cast of The Comedy About A Bank Robbery will be stealing in to take the roles of the current West End cast.

This latest band of dastardly convicts will arrive at the Criterion Theatre from 25 June. They include Sean Carey (Sam Monaghan), David Coomber (Neil Cooper), Julia Frith (Caprice Freeboys), George Hannigan (Everyone Else), Liam Jeavons (Mitch Ruscitti), Damian Lynch (Robin Freeboys), Killian Macardle (Officer Randal Chuck), Jon Trenchard (Warren Slax) and Ashley Tucker (Ruth Monaghan).

The conniving company will be completed by understudies Julie Cullen, Charlotte Duffy, Tom Hopcroft, Ross Virgo and Eddy Westbury.

The Comedy About A Bank Robbery recently celebrated its third birthday in the West End, extending its tale of comedic capers until May 2020.

The show is set in summer 1958, at the Minneapolis City Bank. A priceless diamond lies at the heart of a well-guarded vault, and only the bravest of criminals would think of snatching it… or the most unorthodox. Enter an escaped convict, his screwball sidekick, his trickster girlfriend… and the maintenance man. In a town where everyone’s a crook, who’ll end up bagging the jewel? Expect dynamite comedy to ensue.
