Win 1 of 7 pairs of tickets to A Comedy About A Bank Robbery at the Criterion Theatre

Get ready for an evening of quick-witted comedy in London’s West End with Mischief Theatre. An Olivier Award-winning British theatre company specialising in comedy, the group was founded in 2008 by students from The London Academy of Music & Dramatic Art, led by Artistic Director Henry Lewis and Company Director Jonathan Sayer. Since its inception, the company has released numerous productions (both scripted and improvised) to widespread critical acclaim, which have been performed in the West End, across the UK, and throughout Europe and Asia.

The company premiered its first show, Let’s See What Happens, in July 2008 at The Questors Theatre in London, where it ran for one week before moving to The Edinburgh Festival. Mischief Theatre has since produced three more improvised shows: Lights! Camera! Improvise!, Late Night Impro Fight and Improvaganza, as well as a range of scripted shows including The Murder Before Christmas, Mogic and The Buffoons. Among its most popular productions are The Play That Goes Wrong, which won Best New Comedy at the 2015 Laurence Olivier Awards, and Peter Pan Goes Wrong; a humorous take on J.M. Barrie’s classic tale which returned for a second run following exceptional critical acclaim. 

The latest offering,
A Comedy About A Bank Robbery, opened at the Criterion Theatre in April 2016 and has been boldly declared “The funniest show in the West End” by The Telegraph. Written by Henry Lewis, Jonathan Sayer and Henry Shields, the smash-and-grab hit is a fast, fabulous comedy caper. 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?
