8th to 12th July 2008 at the Chrysalis Theatre, Milton Keynes.

They thought they had planned and committed the perfect  crime… but there was just one little problem…

The stage play of what is arguably the greatest “Ealing Comedy” film – the Ladykillers (made in 1955 and starring Alec Guinness, Peter Sellers, Herbert Lom and many more).

A gang of gentleman crooks, led by the sinister Professor, use a sweet, if rather eccentric, granny as a pawn in their scheme to steal a large quantity of cash in a security van heist.

All goes to plan when the innocent old lady unwittingly plays her part for the men she thinks are humble musicians. But, when she finally catches on to what’s happening and threatens to inform the police, our thieves are left with a problem. Surely disposing of this elderly witness can’t be too hard…?

Production generously sponsored by J. Garrard & Allen (of Olney).
