About The Ladykillers

Graham Linehan’s award-winning adaptation of the classic Ealing comedy The Ladykillers, returns to the West End this summer, playing at  The Vaudeville Theatre. This followsg its record breaking debut West End season at the Gielgud Theatre in 2011/12 and subsequent UK tour. 

Written by Graham Linehan (Father Ted, The I.T. Crowd, Black Books) and directed by Sean Foley (The Play What I Wrote), The Ladykillers broke all box office records at the Gielgud Theatre during its debut season. The Ladykillers recently received the 2013 WhatsOnStage.com Award for Best New Comedy and was nominated for five Laurence Olivier Awards in 2012 including Best New Play, Best Direction, Best Set Design, Best Actress in a Play and Best Sound Design.

The Ladykillers tells the classic black comedy tale of a sweet little old lady, alone in her house, 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 and 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?

The Ladykillers featuring a stellar cast of some of the finest stage and screen comedy actors including, Simon Day (The Fast Show), Ralf Little (The Royale Family), Olivier Award winners Con O’Neill and John Gordon Sinclair, Chris McCalphy and Angela Thorne (To The Manor Born) as the sweetly innocent Mrs Wilberforce.
