“You will laugh all night!” – NE Lifestyle Magazine

“a very funny play and a jolly end to the People’s Theatre’s current season.” ★★★★ – The Journal

“an affectionate adaption and hilarious triumph.” Nights Out Newcastle

Elderly, widowed Mrs Louisa Wilberforce lives quietly with her parrot, General Gordon, in a genteel Victorian house in 1950s London. She is more than pleased when the charming Professor Marcus rents her spare room to rehearse his classical quintet. Little does she know that her guests are really a bunch of oddball gangsters planning a bank heist.

This stage adaptation of the legendary Ealing comedy is from the Graham Linehan (co-writer of Father Ted), and has enjoyed great success across the country.

The People's Theatre is delighted to bring you this classic black comedy to put some big laughs - and a little darkness - into your summer evenings.
