The Ladykillers

by Graham Linehan

Directed by Trevor Ferdy

A classic black comedy: posing as an amateur string quartet, criminal mastermind Professor Marcus and his gang of bank robbers rent a room in the house of unsuspecting widow Mrs Wilberforce. The villains plot to involve her, unwittingly, in their bank robbery, but Mrs Wilberforce is a force to be reckoned with.

This hilarious 21st century take on the 1955 classic film written by William Rose was adapted for the stage in 2011 by Graham Linehan (of "The IT Crowd" and "Father Ted" fame).

This amateur production of „The Ladykillers“ was presented by special arrangement with SAMUEL FRENCH, LTD.
