The Comedy About  A Bank Robbery is showing at the Criterion Theatre and currently booking until 3rd May 2020.  The Criterion Theatre opened in 1874 and found success under the management of Charles Wyndham.  During the Second World War the BBC used the venue as a studio because of its underground location.  Robert Bourne and Sally Greene set up the Criterion Theatre Trust, a charity to protect the theatre’s future.

The Criterion Theatre is privately owned and so the best place to buy tickets to The Comedy About A Bank Robbery is through the theatre’s website.  For more information about your visit to the Criterion Theatre, read our guide.
