The Ladykillers (Touring)
@ Curve, Leicester
Sorry - no tickets available
Following a critically acclaimed and sell out West End season, the celebrated Ealing comedy, The Ladykillers, comes to life on stage in a hilarious and thrilling new adaption by Graham Linehan (Father Ted, The IT Crowd) and directed by Sean Foley (The Play What I Wrote).
Starring Michele Dotrice (Some Mothers Do ‘Ave ‘Em), Shaun Williamson (Extras and EastEnders) and Clive Mantle (Casualty and The Vicar of Dibley).
The Ladykillers is a classic black comedy; a sweet little old lady, alone in her house, is pitted against a gang of criminal misfits who will stop at nothing…
Posing as amateur musicians, Professor Marcus and his gang rent rooms in the lopsided house of sweet but strict Mrs Wilberforce. The villains plot to involve her unwittingly in Marcus’ brilliantly conceived heist job. The police are left stumped, but Mrs Wilberforce becomes wise to their ruse and Marcus concludes that there is only one way to keep the old lady quiet. With only her parrot, General Gordon, to help her, Mrs W. is alone with five desperate men. But who will be forced to face the music?
