Probably the best amateur theatre club in
THE LADYKILLERS written by Graham Linehan (of Father Ted)
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 musicians, Professor Marcus and
his gang rent a room in the home of Mrs Wilberforce. The villains
plot to unwittingly involve her in a brilliantly conceived robbery.
However Mrs Wilberforce becomes wise to their crime and demand they
give themselves up, the robbers conclude that there is only one way
to keep the old lady quiet. With only her parrot, General Gordon, to
help her, Mrs Wilberforce is alone with five desperate men.
But who will be forced to face the music?
