Win tickets to The Comedy About A Bank Robbery

Mischief Theatre, the team behind award-winning productions The Play That Goes Wrong, is celebrating the first birthday of their latest West End hit The Comedy About A Bank Robbery.

And we have a chance to win a London break to see the show at the Criterion Theatre – including an overnight hotel stay and a pair of tickets.

The show, described as 'Ocean's Eleven meets the Marx Brothers', was nominated for best new comedy at the recent Olivier Awards and was praised as 'lung-bustingly funny' by The Guardian.

Its plot revolves around a priceless diamond that has been entrusted to the bank in a town where everyone's a crook and even security guards can't be trusted, leading to a slew of visual gags and physical slapstick.

Tickets to the show, priced from £20, are available here

But for your chance to win, answer the following question by 9am on May 8, when we will randomly select a winner from all correct answers received.

Terms and conditions

One reader will win two Band A tickets to see The Comedy About A Bank Robbery at the Criterion Theatre and an overnight stay in a twin or double room at a minimum three-star hotel. Any additional expenses incurred are the responsibility of the winner. No cash alternative. Travel not included. The prize is valid until June 30, 2017, subject to availability.
