The Ladykillers

Posing as amateur musicians, the villainous Prof. Marcus and his gang rent rooms in the house of sweet but strict Mrs. Wilberforce. Unwittingly using her in Marcus’ heist job, the police are left stumped as Mrs Wilberforce becomes wise to the ruse. Marcus concludes that there is only one way to keep the old lady quiet. But who will be forced to face the music? Classic Ealing comedy hilariously adapted for stage by the writer of Father Ted.
