“Is anyone back from the robbery yet?”
When criminal mastermind Professor Marcus and a motley crew of misfits pose as amateur musicians to rent rooms from the sweetly eccentric Mrs. Wilberforce, the police have no idea that they’re planning a daring bank robbery. But Mrs. Wilberforce is not so easily deceived.
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…
The classic Ealing Studios comedy reimagined for the stage by the creator of Father Ted, Blackbooks, and The IT Crowd.
An ambitious production by the Grads directed by David Grimes (Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf, August: Osage County and Titus Andronicus), with a cast of Edinburgh Graduate stalwarts and emerging talent. A dynamic performance, with audience on three sides, and a script by one of Britain’s best comedy writers, The Ladykillers is one we’re dying to see.
