The Ladykillers, The Watermill Theatre

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

Criminal mastermind, Professor Marcus, and his gang of oddball villains posing as musicians, meet their match when they take up residence in the top floor room of Mrs Wilberforce’s dilapidated house. A convenient location to plan their heist, they figure their sweet-natured old landlady will be easily hoodwinked. But beneath her demure exterior, Mrs Wilberforce is made of sterner stuff and, with just her parrot, General Gordon, for moral support, she turns the tables on the bogus quintet.

Based on the much-loved Ealing Comedy, this award-winning stage adaptation by Graham Linehan, writer of Father Ted and The IT Crowd, fizzes with fun.
