The Brookside Theatre proudly present THE LADYKILLERS Based on the delightfully macabre and much-loved Ealing Comedy, this award-winning stage adaptation by Graham Linehan, writer of Father Ted and The IT Crowd, is brimming with blackly comic characters and hilarious banter. Posing as amateur musicians, criminal mastermind Professor Marcus and his gang rent rooms in the lopsided house of sweet-natured Mrs Wilberforce. The villains plot to involve her, unwittingly, in their brilliantly conceived heist job, but Mrs Wilberforce is made of sterner stuff and with just her parrot, General Gordon, for moral support, she turns the tables on the bogus band. With his brilliant plot rumbled, the Professor decides there’s only one way to keep the old lady quiet – Mrs Wilberforce must face the music. And he doesn’t mean a string quartet… Don't miss this fantastic production brought to you by the team behind The Woman In Black, 'Allo 'Allo and The Rise and Fall of Little Voice.
