It’s a rather small, pretty theatre. We sat in a box with a side view: we spent a lot of time leaning across and missed action at the very left-hand side of the stage. Fortunately, there wasn’t an awful lot we couldn’t physically see, but I'd still recommend you go for a Circle seat instead. The chairs weren’t the comfiest.

The Comedy About a Bank Robbery is a brilliantly witty show with laugh-out-loud lines and even funnier visuals. There was some very clever staging, too- I won’t ruin it!

First of all the theatre - small,old traditional with a few poles to partially obstruct views. But as it is small, intimate even, you are so close to the stage even in the upper tier. And the whole theatre, which looks just like any other, is totally below ground! Amazing!

And then there is the Comedy about a Bank Robbery! Slapstick, funny, stupid, mad, farcical but brilliant fun! For anyone who has seen The Play that goes Wrong, this is from the same team and equally hilarious! Personally I would recommend getting seat in the Circle.

Absolutely hilarious, couldn’t stop laughing from start to finish, needed my inhaler a few times, brilliant night out, highly recommended to go and see this, will definitely have to come back and see it again, as I missed some of the dialogue through laughing so much

I really enjoyed my visit here. It’s not a large theatre but has loads of character. We saw a gala performance of Mischief Movie Night and felt like we were right in the middle of the action.

We took our Canadian relatives to see this play and we were disappointed. It started off being quite witty and funny but became really boring in places!.
