The Comedy About a Bank Robbery synopsis

Written by Henry Lewis, Henry Shields, and Jonathan Sayer (also behind Mischief Theatre's The Play That Goes Wrong at the Duchess Theatre until October 2019 and Peter Pan Goes Wrong), The Comedy About a Bank Robbery is set in Minnesota's largest city during the hot summer months of 1958. An escaped convict is obsessed with stealing a large diamond from the Minneapolis City Bank. In a similar fashion to such heist films as The Italian Job and Ocean's Eleven, he's got a team of accomplices, including his girlfriend, to perform what just may become one of the biggest heists in history. Unfortunately, for him, they're not all that bright!

Thanks to the Mischief Theatre's huge success, the company also plans to open two brand-new shows at the Vaudeville Theatre later this year – Magic Goes Wrong and Groan Ups – with tickets to these new productions on sale now. They are also set to premiere a six-part TV series for The Play That Goes Wrong entitled The Goes Wrong Show.
