The Comedy About A Bank Robbery has a new cast

The people have spoken! Due to popular demand, Mischief Theatre’s The Comedy About A Bank Robbery has been extended. The smash-hit show will now run until 3 November 2019 giving you more of a chance to steal a look at the critically acclaimed comedy.

Along with the announcement of the much-deserved extension comes news of a new cast! From 18 December, Julia Frith will play Caprice Freeboys, Liam Jeavons will play Mitch Ruscitti, Jack Whittle will play Sam Monaghan, and Jean-Luke Worrell will play Warren Slax. From 15 January 2019, Gareth Tempest and Emily Stott will take over the roles of Mitch Ruscitti and Caprice Freeboys.

From the creators of the Olivier Award-winning The Play That Goes Wrong, The Comedy About A Bank Robbery is a fast-paced caper full of slapstick, innuendo and mishaps that will have you laughing from beginning to end.

Set in the summer of 1958, a priceless diamond is entrusted to the Minneapolis City Bank. But an escaped convict is planning to steal the gem with the help of his screwball sidekick, trickster girlfriend… and the maintenance man. Through a series of mistaken identities, love triangles and hidden agendas, it turns out even the most reputable can’t be trusted. And in a town where everyone’s a crook and even seagulls are suspicious, what could possibly go wrong?

We now sell our famous TKTS Booth discounts online here at Official London Theatre.

We are now cancelling all performances up until and including 31 May 2020 to help us process existing bookings whilst we wait for further clarity from the government in terms of when we will be able to reopen.

We are so sorry that in these testing and difficult times you are not able to enjoy the show you have booked for and hope the following helps clarify next steps in respect of your tickets .

There is nothing that you need to do if your performance has been cancelled, but we do ask for your patience.

If you have booked directly with the theatre or show website for an affected performance, please be assured that they will contact you directly to arrange an exchange for a later date, a credit note/voucher or a refund. If you have booked via a ticket agent they will also be in contact with you directly.

We are processing in strict date order of performance, so you are likely to be contacted after the date you were due to go to the theatre. However, we want to reassure you that you will be contacted, and your order will be processed, but please do bear with us.

We’d like to thank everyone who has been patient and kind in dealing with their ticket providers so far and we are sorry that we cannot process your order as quickly as we would like.

Please do not contact your credit card company as that will slow the process down and put an additional burden on our box office and ticket agent teams.

In order for us to serve our audiences the best we can, please do not get in touch with your point of sale if you have booked for performances after 31 May. Please be reassured that if we have to cancel future performances you will be directly contacted by your theatre or ticket provider. Our producers continue to plan for all eventualities dependent on the individual needs of their shows and we will provide further updates on specific shows as and when they become available.

We look forward to welcoming you back into our theatres as soon as we are allowed to resume performances. In the meantime stay safe and healthy.

While theatres are currently closed, various venues and productions are making announcements for their individual shows, including cancellations and rescheduled performances. Please check with the individual shows for details.
