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?
