THE LADY KILLERS by Graham Linehan
Re-write of the classic Ealing black comedy by the writer of TV's Father Ted.
A sweet 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 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?
Winner of umpteen West End theatre awards.
