Award-winning comedy The Ladykillers returns to London this summer at The Vaudeville Theatre.

Gloriously adapted for the stage by Graham Linehan (Father Ted) and directed by Sean Foley (The Play What I Wrote), The Ladykillers is the classic, blackly comic tale of a sweet little old lady, alone in her house, pitted against a gang of criminal misfits who will stop at nothing to pull off their meticulously-planned heist.

Featuring a stellar cast of some of the finest stage and screen comedy actors including Simon Day (The Fast Show), Ralf Little (The Royle Family), Olivier Award winners Con O’Neill and John Gordon Sinclair, Chris McCalphy, and Angela Thorne (To The Manor Born) as the sweetly innocent Mrs Wilberforce.

Posing as amateur musicians, Professor Marcus and his gang rent rooms in the lopsided house of sweet but strict Mrs Wilberforce.

The villains plot her unwitting involvement in Marcus' brilliantly conceived heist job.

The police are left stumped but Mrs Wilberforce becomes wise to their ruse and Marcus concludes that there's 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?
