Mischief Theatre will perform The Comedy About A Bank Robbery at the Bristol Hippodrome, in St Augustine’s Parade, from February 12-16 at 7.30pm, with additional 2.30pm showings on February 13-14 and 16.

Mischief Theatre’s show is a quickly paced comedy hailed as one of the funniest shows in the West End.

Set in America during the summer of 1958, the city bank in Minneapolis has been entrusted with a priceless diamond.

An escaped convict is dead 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 galore, even the most reputable characters cannot be trusted.

In a town where everyone is a crook, who will end up bagging the jewel?

Mischief Theatre was founded in 2008 by a group of graduates of The London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art.

Starting as an improvised theatre group on the London and Edinburgh Fringe shows, they have grown to become one of the UK’s leading theatre companies, winning the Olivier Award for best new comedy for The Play That Goes Wrong.

In December 2016, Mischief made their television debut on the BBC with Olivier Award nominee Peter Pan Goes Wrong, which also enjoyed two sell-out West End seasons.

Tickets, priced £13-36.90, are available at www.atgickets.com/bristol or 08448 713012.
