West End’s Biggest ‘Hitter’*, The Comedy About A Bank Robbery extends until November 2018 as new cast members join the company
* With 127 blows dealt per performance, (that’s 82,296 since opening) the production bags the prize for the greatest number of ‘hits’ in the West End
Created by Mischief Theatre and written by Henry Lewis, Jonathan Sayer and Henry Shields, the critically acclaimed and Olivier Award-nominated The Comedy About A Bank Robbery today announces a further extension until November 2018 as new faces – some fresh, some familiar – join the company.
From November 29, stealing their role full time will be Samuel Fogell and Holly Sumpton who previously understudied for lovebirds (or is it jailbirds?) Sam Monaghan and Caprice Freeboys. Stepping into the standard issue shoes of Officers Cooper and Shuck will be fresh face Laurence Pears and familiar face Jeremy Lloyd, reprising his role from the original cast and having previously played Everyone Else, now to be played by original cast member Chris Leask, also reprising his role. Completing the cast will be understudies Jack Whittle and Lydia Fraser.
The Comedy About A Bank Robbery is playing at the Criterion Theatre.
