Alnwick Theatre Club Presents

The Ladykillers

By Graham Linehan

From the Motion Picture Screenplay by William Rose By Special Arrangement with StudioCanal & Fiery Angel Ltd, London

The Ealing Comedies of the 1950s and 60s were superbly funny films and The Ladykillers one of the best. The story has been crafted into an excellent piece of comedy theatre in its own right by Graham Linehan whilst staying close to the original story in the film.

The story sees a hapless band of criminals renting out a room in Mrs Wilberforce’s London home close to King’s Cross directly over the approach tunnels into the station which they use to plan and execute a heist. Their unlikely cover is that they are a quartet of professional musicians with a penchant for Boccherini!

It all goes like clockwork under the direction of Professor Marcus and Mrs Wilberforce is charmed by the beautiful sounds floating down from her upstairs room until the heist ……….

This is a great comedy for all the family and cracking entertainment for the summer holidays

This amateur production of “The Ladykillers” is presented by arrangement with Concord

Theatricals Ltd. on behalf of Samuel French
