Auckland Theatre Company
A gang of criminal misfits, posing as an amateur chamber orchestra, rent rooms in the lopsided house of sweet old Mrs Wilberforce.
From there they mastermind a daring bank heist in nearby Kings Cross. Although the police are stumped, Mrs Wilberforce wises up to their ruse; so the fraudulent quintet decides to despatch her before she talks. With only her mangy parrot, General Gordon, to help her, Mrs Wilberforce must outwit five desperate men. But who will be forced to face the music?
The Ladykillers is a madcap summer comedy caper, which brims with crazy characters and lethal laughter. Criminally funny, exuberant, and irresistible as ever!
