THE latest show by Mischief Theatre, The Comedy About a Bank Robbery, comes to Bristol Hippodrome from Tuesday 12th to Saturday 16th February.
The tour follows the success of the company’s multi award-winning The Play That Goes Wrong, and opened last August at Birmingham Repertory Theatre. It is now visiting 31 venues around the UK until 8th June 2019.
It is the summer of 1958, and Minneapolis City Bank has been entrusted with a priceless diamond. An escaped convict is 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?
The cast includes Seán Carey, David Coomber, Julia Frith, George Hannigan, Liam Jeavons, Damian Lynch, Killian Macardle, Ashley Tucker and Jon Trenchard.
Mischief was founded in 2008 by a group of graduates of the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art (LAMDA), as an improvised theatre group on the London and Edinburgh fringes.
It is performed in Bristol nightly at 7.30, with 2.30 matinees on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. For more information, telephone 0844 871 3012.
