The LadyKillers

By Graham Linehan A Salisbury Playhouse, New Wolsey Theatre Ipswich and Queen’s Theatre Hornchurch Production
31 October - 18 November 2017 Main House
The Ladykillers


A Salisbury Playhouse, New Wolsey Theatre Ipswich and Queen’s Theatre Hornchurch Production by arrangement with Fiery Angel Limited, London

Tuesday 31 October – Saturday 18 November

When Mrs Wilberforce puts a sign in her newsagent’s window advertising ‘A Room to Let’ she’s delighted when the mysterious Professor Marcus proclaims it perfect for rehearsing his unorthodox string quintet. However, she soon discovers that she is not making tea for a motley band of musicians but harbouring a gang of hardened criminals and conmen planning the great King’s Cross Train Robbery!

As his masterplan goes off the rails, and the bodies drop onto them, it begins to dawn on the Professor that, in Mrs Wilberforce (and General Gordon, her extraordinary featherless parrot), he may have finally met his match.

Graham Linehan (Father Ted, The IT Crowd) has adapted this much-loved Ealing Comedy for the stage, mixing madcap comedy and criminal capers to hilarious effect.

From the motion picture screenplay by William Rose by special arrangement with Studiocanal and Fiery Angel Ltd, London.
