As the last House play of the year, The Knoll presents The Ladykillers in the Ryan Theatre on Thursday 7 and Friday 8 February.
Directed by English and Theatre Studies beak Gaynor Jervis, this classic black comedy is adapted from the original screenplay. Posing as amateur musicians, Professor Marcus and his gang of criminal misfits rent rooms from a sweet and elderly lady, Mrs Wilberforce. The villains plot to involve her, unwittingly, in Marcus’ latest heist and the police are left stumped. When Mrs Wilberforce becomes wise to their ruse, the gang realise that there is one way alone to keep her quiet. With only her parrot, General Gordon to help her, Mrs Wilberforce is on her own with five dangerous criminals.
