Mischief Theatre’s production of The Comedy About a Bank Robbery is to close after four years in the West End.
The show will close on May 3, 2020, having opened in April 2016. It was nominated in the best new comedy category at the 2017 Olivier Awards.
Producer Kenny Wax said today: “After a fabulous four-year run at the Criterion Theatre, we have decided that now is the right time to draw an end to this incredible production. A four-year run is a remarkable achievement from which we all take much pride in. Mischief Theatre continue to have a magnificent presence in the West End and we hope audiences who enjoy The Comedy About a Bank Robbery will go on to see their other productions playing at venues across the UK.”
Mischief continues to be represented in the West End with The Play That Goes Wrong playing at the Duchess Theatre and Magic Goes Wrong at the Vaudeville Theatre, where it has a residency.
Meanwhile, Peter Pan Goes Wrong is currently on a UK tour and will be joined later this year by Groan Ups.
