Why Watch The Comedy About a Bank Robbery
Opening in 2016 to excellent responses from critics, “The Comedy About A Bank Robbery” is a play that pays obvious homage to Hollywood bank robbery movies while being completely original.

With all its staging and acting coming together exactly right, “The Comedy About A Bank Robbery” promises to leave you with a big smile on your face.
The play is set in the summer of 1958. A Hungarian Prince has entrusted a rather large diamond to the The Minneapolis City Bank.

In a town where everyone's a crook and you can't trust anyone, where will the diamond end up?
