If you enjoyed the smash-hit comedy The Play That Goes Wrong then prepare yourself for The Comedy About A Bank Robbery, because the brains behind that are back for some more madcap mayhem.

This time it's all about a giant diamond, six incompetent crooks... and a security guard snoozing on the job.

But in this town everybody's a crook, and you can't even trust the seagulls. So what on earth could possibly go wrong?
Or, more likely, what on earth could go right? (Answer: nothing!)

It's a bit like Ocean's Eleven, I suppose... but starring the Marx Brothers instead of George Clooney.

Daily Telegraph★★★★★ – "This is the funniest show in the West End" The Times★★★★★ – "Fast and fabulous comedy caper is a joyful night out" Time Out★★★★ – "The best new comedy to open straight into the West End in decades" Guardian★★★★ – "Thrilling and daringly inventive... This lung-bustingly funny play is just what the therapist ordered"
