To celebrate the second birthday of Mischief Theatre's smash-hit play The Comedy About a Bank Robbery, actor Chris Leask took us on a tour around the Criterion to find out how the preparations for the big day were going.

The production, written by Mischief Theatre's Henry Lewis, Jonathan Sayer and Henry Shields, follows an anarchic attempt to rob a bank in Minneapolis, with a slapstick twist.

When the show first opened, WhatsOnStage critic Mark Valencia said "it will have you laughing all the way to the bank", and awarded it five stars.

The comedy followed on from the company's previous successes, including The Play That Goes Wrong (which is also currently touring and running on Broadway) and Peter Pan Goes Wrong.
