What people are saying about The Comedy About A Bank Robbery

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Riddiulously funny! I'd already been to see The Play that Went Wrong and loved it. I was hoping for somehting similar and I wasn't disappointed. I cried with laughter as the whole thing is so ludicrous. I thoroughly enjoyed it and the cast were brilliant. Not everyone's cup of tea though as one of the fiends I went with left at the interval.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A very funny show as you'd expect from this brilliant company I went with family and had a great time, very funny show in a beautifully decorated theatre. Resonantly priced ice creams and programme . Most enjoyable

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Full of belly laughs ! What a bizarre but hilarious show ! All the cast worked their socks off, many playing different parts and having to change all the sets too while singing along. It was not only full of visual jokes but great wordplay as well. Some very original visual jokes, particularly towards the end when they were sitting at a 'vertical wall'. Recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very funny excellent writing Went as a family with 15 yr olds. Was liked by all ages. Spin on words/ slapstick humour, very well done. Beautiful theatre too. Very small and intimate.
