It’s been playing in London’s West End for nearly three years, and now Mischief Theatre’s smash-and-grab hit, The Comedy About A Bank Robbery comes to Cardiff’s New Theatre from tonight (October 9).
It’s summer 1958. Minneapolis City Bank has been entrusted with a priceless diamond. An escaped convict is dead set on pocketing the gem with the help of his screwball sidekick, trickster girlfriend… and the maintenance man. With mistaken identities, love triangles and hidden agendas, even the most reputable can’t be trusted. In a town where everyone’s a crook, who will end up bagging the jewel?
Welsh audiences have bought thousands of tickets for Mischief’s original hit, the phenomenally successful and multi award-winning comedy The Play That Goes Wrong, and this new production ramps up the laughs, being hailed as the funniest show in the West End.
Producer Kenny Wax says: “This production follows hard on the heels of the sold-out tour of The Play That Goes Wrong. Audiences are in for another hilarious treat and we salute Mischief for having written another wonderfully funny play.”
The Comedy About a Bank Robbery plays at Cardiff’s New Theatre from October 9 – 13 and tickets are available from newtheatrecardiff.co.uk and on 029 2087 8889.
