Sparkling Ealing comedy The Ladykillers comes to Sharnbrook Mill Theatre next week.

The show follows a band of hapless criminals who face their worst nightmare – a little old lady.

Now with a new script, The Ladykillers is a black comedy, adapted by Father Ted writer Graham Linehan from the celebrated Ealing film.

It is set in 1950s London, home to Mrs Wilberforce, a sweet, innocent little old lady, who rents out her lopsided house to a group of amateur musicians, who aren’t all that they seem.

They’re actually a band of criminal misfits, who will stop at nothing to cover up their crimes.

With only her pet parrot, General Gordon, to help her, Mrs Wilberforce is left alone with five desperate men. The audience will discover who will be forced to face the music.

The show, presented by the award-winning Sharnbrook Mill Theatre Trust, runs nightly from Monday March 13 to Saturday March 18 at 7.30pm

Tickets are available from www.sharnbrookmilltheatre.co.uk or in person from Twinkle Twinkle Boutique, High Street, Sharnbrook.
