Movie classic makes move to The Stables
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’s brilliantly-conceived heist.
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 Wilberforce is alone with five desperate men.
But who will be forced to face the music?
The Ladykillers is a new stage adaptation of the Ealing Studios classic film of 1954 and is written by the creator of Father Ted.
The wonderful cast is led by, amongst others, Rob Hustwayte and “Fred” Lacey.
The Ladykillers is a delightfully different entertainment, guaranteed to lift the winter blues.
