Go down to the Criterion Theatre, take your seat, sit back and be prepared to be astounded by this non-stop, hyperactive, pun-fest of an uber-farce played to destruction by a cast which is in constant danger of being arrested for riotous assembly. In fact, last night saw the arrival of the new cast - the show premiered in March 2016 - and the transition was as … [Read more...]

Review by Liz Dyer: The Comedy About a Bank Robbery ‘not to be missed’
The Comedy about a Bank Robbery offers both existing fans and first-timers the opportunity to enjoy the Mischief Theatre genius, and it’s a chance not to be missed. This company’s meteoric rise to award-winning West End glory is not only thoroughly deserved; if there’s any justice, it’s also far from over.
Review by Chris Omaweng
It came across to me as the latest in a long line of British farces, and it’s a sufficiently enjoyable couple of hours. The timing, as is required for a British farce of this kind, is impeccable down to the half-second. As ever with Mischief Theatre the primary objective appears to be to provide light entertainment rather than to give its audiences deep and meaningful storylines. There are elements of the plot that are never properly explored or explained, but the show is best enjoyed by overlooking the shortcomings in the narrative, and going with the flow.

Who could have predicted, a few years ago, that Mischief Theatre - who once performed a fringe show in which the cast outnumbered the audience - would one day have no less than three successful plays running simultaneously in the West End? Following the runaway success of The Play That Goes Wrong and Peter Pan Goes Wrong, the company's latest show is a fast, frantic … [Read more...]
THE PLAY THAT GOES WRONG ANNOUNCE A NEW AND EVEN LESS CAPABLE CAST The Play That Goes Wrong announce that there will be a new and doubly incompetent bunch of ‘would be’ thespians taking to the stage at the Duchess Theatre from Wednesday 29 June 2016. Mischief Theatre founder and writer Henry Lewis said, ‘We are disappointed to have found an even … [Read more...]
It doesn’t fall foul of the Trade Descriptions Act 1968 in any way – The Comedy About A Bank Robbery is, well, an amusing story about a bank robbery, from Mischief Theatre, the theatre company that brought The Play That Goes Wrong and Peter Pan Goes Wrong to the West End stage. This is not simply yet another ‘goes wrong’ production – it is hardly a … [Read more...]
