Our co-production of The Ladykillers opened this week and has left audiences and critics ‘crying with laughter’. High praise has also been given to the show’s inventive set which sees Mrs Wilberforce’s house rotate 360 degrees and open out like a book.
The Reviews Hub rated the production four-stars and said ‘Forget Alec Guinness. Forget Tom Hanks. This is an ingenious stage version of William Rose’s classic Ealing comedy’.
Romford Recorder was left ‘snorting with laughter’ and applauded the production for bringing ‘the house down [with this] laugh out loud crime caper’.
Here’s what the other critics have been saying:

‘Had me chuckling through most of the night’ Hornchurch Life
‘The perfect night out’ Grapevine
‘This is a fine ensemble, with some perfectly rounded characters providing many laughs’ British Theatre.com
