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.

PRIDE (15)


PRIDE is inspired by an extraordinary true story. It's the summer of 1984, Margaret Thatcher is in power and the National Union of Mineworkers is on strike, prompting a London-based group of gay and lesbian activists to raise money to support the strikers' families. Initially rebuffed by the Union, the group identifies a tiny mining village in Wales and sets off to make their donation in person. As the strike drags on, the two groups discover that standing together makes for the strongest union of all.

Once seen, never forgotten: an indefinable confusion of superb musicianship and side-splitting comic
genius, the New Rope String Band are truly unique entertainers. Elements of circus, clowning, vaudeville,
slapstick and sheer inspired silliness are spliced with beautiful acoustic music from various world traditions,
in precision-honed yet uproarious performances. From musical gyrations to deconstructed nursery rhymes,
Python-esque absurdism to pyrotechnics, dream sequences and live, interactive film.
