The Ladykillers tells the story of the eccentric little old lady Mrs Wilberforce who lives alone with her parrots in a strange lopsided house in Kingâs Cross. Her life is turned upside down by the arrival of Professor Marcus and his four friends, who between them make up the most unlikely group of criminals. Planning the heist of a security van, they decide to use Mrs Wilberforce as cover and involve her unwittingly in the plot. Things do not go well and the Professorâs plan starts to unravel in spectacular and hilarious fashion. Performers Peter Capaldi (Professor Marcus), James Fleet (Major Courtney), Ben Miller (Louis), Clive Rowe (One Round), Stephen Wight (Harry), Marcia Warren (Mrs Wilberforce).
