Laugh­ing all the way to the bank

Where London - - Entertainment -

It’s not of­ten that you find your cheek­bones aching from laugh­ter, but they will be af­ter you see The Comedy about a Bank Rob­bery at the Cri­te­rion Theatre. The play, which comes from the award-win­ning troupe be­hind The Play that Goes Wrong, tells the story of a gang rob­bing a di­a­mond from a bank. The plot, how­ever, is merely the thread that pulls the mad­ness to­gether, which sees an in­ven­tive use of props and stag­ing, from a bird’s eye view of a bank of­fice to pi­geons called Si­mon and Deb­o­rah. The ex­cep­tional tim­ing, un­re­lent­ing en­ergy and straight-faced ex­e­cu­tion of the hi­lar­ity make this a hit.
