The Ladykillers at the Vaudeville Theatre

Vaudeville Theatre, London

Sorry, this show is not currently booking.

Classic Ealing comedy The Ladykillers returns to the West End’s Vaudeville Theatre following a sell-out UK tour.

This hilarious adaptation of classic Ealing comedy The Ladykillers is back in the West End starring Ralf Little, Simon Day and Con O’Neill.

Written by Graham Linehan (Father TedThe I.T. CrowdBlack Books) and directed by Sean Foley (The Play What I Wrote), The Ladykillers was a box-office smash when it ran at the Gielgud Theatre during its debut season, enjoying five Olivier Award nominations including Best New Play, Best Direction, Best Set Design, Best Actress in a Play and Best Sound Design.

An all-star cast includes Ralf Little (The Royale Family), Simon Day (The Fast Show), Angela Thorne (To The Manor Born), John Gordon Sinclair (Gregory’s Girl), Con O’Neill (Blood Brothers) and Chris McCalphy (The Madness of George III).

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?
