4.     The Comedy About A Bank Robbery – Criterion Theatre

‘The Comedy About A Bank Robbery’ is the latest play by the bogglingly prolific and talented team behind ‘The Play That Goes Wrong’ (or more accurately the ‘Play That Goes Wrong’ franchise) and it’s their best and funniest work yet. A genre pastiche, screwball comedy and classic farce that’s as clean and clear as its brassy branding, it spins with a manic energy from Two Ronnies-esque wordplay through surreal set-pieces to slapstick stunts prepped to bring the house down. The writers’ ability to snatch a laugh out of every line, and to intricately prime each scenario with zinging punchlines and pay-offs is stunning, as call-backs and running gags pile up into teetering edifices of absurdity.

Slip on your dancing shoes and watch the story unfold around you in this unique theatrical performance.
