The Comedy About A Bank Robbery: on now at the Cambridge Arts Theatre




Catch this madcap comedy from the makers of The Play That Goes Wrong before it ends on Saturday, March 2.

Now in its third year in the West End, this play from the Mischief Theatre company boasts a stellar cast, farcical situation, a catchy 50s soundtrack and an unpredictable story. "Ocean’s Eleven meets the Marx Brothers," if you will.

Two members of the cast, Liam Jeavons (who plays Mitch Ruscitti) and David Coomber (who plays Neil Cooper) were photographed by the Cambridge Independent last Wednesday (February 20) getting up to no good in the city centre.

Caitlin Clark, marketing manager at the Arts Theatre, said: "The multi award-winning company Mischief Theatre are back at Cambridge Arts Theatre by phenomenal demand with the hysterically funny The Comedy About A Bank Robbery.

"In the show, a priceless diamond is in danger of being stolen from the city bank, sadly they weren’t able to steal the precious jewel from backstage without being spotted by the technical crew, but here are cast members Liam Jeavons and David Coomber taking to the streets of Cambridge with their bags of loot!"
