Once again, I have completely and utterly failed at updating at least semi-regularly. I want to be better. So badly. But alas, working two jobs means that free time is rare, and also that when I do have free time I am exhausted and have a bunch of other stuff to do. The only time off I’ve had recently was a few weeks ago when the American was here and even then we were super busy all week. More on that another time, though.
One of the many things we did while he was here was go and see The Comedy About A Bank Robbery at the Criterion Theatre at Piccadilly Circus. With one us being a poor student and the other a poor graduate, we were looking for something entertaining and affordable and the ‘affordable’ qualifier generally means most West End theatre productions were far out of our reach this time around. We booked our tickets on YPlan and it cost us £22 each for pretty decent seats in the stalls. So not a bad start. On the YPlan app, The Comedy About A Bank Robbery is described as:
One giant diamond. Eight incompetent crooks. And a security guard asleep on the job. What could possibly go right? Penned by and starring the Mischief Theatre Company, this is another hilarious stage show from the group behind The Play That Goes Wrong and Peter Pan Goes Wrong. With the 2015 Olivier Award for Best New Comedy already under their belts, this is certain to be another surefire hit. It’d be criminal to miss it.
