This autumn TADS will be performing “The Ladykillers”, a hilarious black comedy based on the 1955 Ealing film of the same name.
When Mrs. Wilberforce puts a sign in her newsagent’s window advertising “A Room to Let”, she’s delighted when the mysterious Professor Marcus proclaims it perfect for rehearsing his unorthodox string quintet. She soon discovers that she is not making tea for a motley band of musicians, but harbouring a hardened gang of criminals and conmen planning the great Kings Cross Train Robbery!
Graham Linehan (Father Ted, The IT Crowd) has adapted this much-loved film for the stage, his combination of comic timing, subtle puns and fast paced action has kept us laughing all the way through rehearsals and we are sure this will be one of our best productions yet!
Performance dates will be from Wednesday 16th to Saturday 19th November 2022. Tickets are available from https://tadsthrapston.org.uk/tickets or on 07543 321219.
