The Ladykillers, London

4.5
#573 of 1,205 in Nightlife in London
The celebrated Ealing comedy THE LADYKILLERS comes to life on stage in a hilarious and thrilling multi-Olivier Award nominated and Whatsonstage Award winning adaption by Graham Linehan (Father Ted) and directed by Sean Foley (The Play What I Wrote).

The Ladykillers tells the classic black comedy tale of a sweet little old lady, alone in her house, 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 eccentric 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?

Must end 16 November!
