When it comes to great comedy in the West End, there has been one group on the rise in recent years. The Mischief Theatre earned many fans with their show The Play That Goes Wrong and this was proven in 2015 when it won the Laurence Olivier Award for Best New Comedy. Along with their other hits, it cemented the Mischief Theatre as a company to keep a close eye on.

But their influence in the capital is not ending there. From March 2016 audiences can flock to the Criterion Theatre in Piccadilly Circus to witness their latest comedy production in the form of The Comedy About A Bank Robbery, which runs until the summer.

The show does exactly what it says on the tin and introduces us to eight criminals hoping to get their hand on a giant diamond. But it being a comedy, things are unlikely to go as planned.

Henry Lewis, Jonathan Sayer and Henry Shields penned the script to the show and David Farley is set to direct. If audiences react in the same way that they did to the Mischief Theatre’s previous hit productions then this is likely to be another hit comedy for the West End, this time taking up the stage previously occupied by another comedy hit in the form of The 39 Steps.

The success of the Mischief Theatre’s previous shows has ensured that the group is well known to audiences around the capital. The company earned the Best New Comedy Laurence Olivier Award for The Play That Goes Wrong in 2015 and its work has also been seen by worldwide audiences. In addition to that and their Christmas show Peter Pan Goes Wrong at the Apollo Theatre, the company is also responsible for another West End hit in Lights! Camera! Improvise! an improv show that has been seen in the West End and in Edinburgh.

So audiences are in safe hands with The Comedy About A Bank Robbery, which is sure to be another hilarious look at incompetence, leading to memorable set-pieces and laugh-out-loud moments. For comedy fans in the capital, it is not to be missed.

The Comedy About A Bank Robbery is at the Criterion Theatre from Tuesday 12th April 2016 (with previews beginning on Thursday 31st March 2016).
