Laughing all the way to the bank
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.
