Stage adaptation by Graham Linehan, from the 1955 Ealing comedy film with screenplay by William Rose. Director Sean Foley


Résumé: Tells the classic black comedy tale of a sweet little old lady, alone in her house, pitted against a gang of criminal misfits who will stop at nothing....Posing as amateur musicians, Professor Marcus and his gang rent rooms in the lopsided house of sweet and eccentric Mrs Wilberforce. The villains plot to involve her unwittingly in Marcus’ brilliantly conceived heist job. The police are left stumped but Mrs Wilberforce becomes wise to their ruse and Marcus concludes that there is only one way to keep the old lady quiet. With only her parrot, General Gordon, to help her, Mrs W. is alone with five desperate men. But who will be forced to face the music?

Presse : "The great thing about the film is that it is at times genuinely chilling as well as hilarious, and the one loss in Sean Foley’s hugely enjoyable stage production, which has just begun a second run in the West End following a national tour, is that it never quite matches the creepiness of the original. I would venture to suggest, however, that it is even funnier than the movie."
Charles Spencer for The Daily Telegraph

"It's all perfectly amiable, but the production needs more spit and polish if it is to recapture its original zest."
Michael Billington for The Guardian

"To see the show a second time is to marvel anew at the inspired way Linehan takes the ingenious premise of William Rose's original screenplay and converts it into an opportunity for uproarious slapstick stage farce, fizzing with entirely fresh gags."
Paul Taylor for The Independent

"Entertained for a couple of hours."
Fiona Mountford for The Evening Standard
