Celebrated Ealing comedy comes to life on stage

The 1955 classic Ealing comedy, The Ladykillers, will be brought back to life this autumn in a new stage production opening at the Gielgud Theatre in November.

It tells the story of the eccentric little old lady, Mrs Wilberforce, who lives alone with her parrots in a strange lopsided house in King’s Cross. Her life is turned upside down by the arrival of Professor Marcus and his four friends, who between them make up the most unlikely group of criminals.
The cast will feature BAFTA winner Peter Capaldi, James Fleet, Ben Miller, Stephen Wight and Olivier Award-winner Clive Rowe, with Marcia Warren as the sweetly innocent Mrs Wilberforce.
The Ladykillers is booking from 26th November to 18th February 2012 at the Gielgud Theatre. Groups of 10 or more receive a discount.
