a stage adaptation by Graham Linehan of the classic Ealing Comedy
21-25 April 2015
Posing as amateur musicians, Professor Marcus and his gang rent rooms in the lopsided house of sweet but strict Mrs Wilberforce. The villains plot to involve her, unwittingly, in Marcus' brilliantly conceived heist. The police are left stumped but Mrs Wilberforce cottons on, 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 Wilberforce is alone with five desperate men. But who will be forced to face the music?
"This is no pale stage rip-off but a new-written piece of perfection." - The Times
