The Ladykillers departs West End for a UK tour
Date Posted: 19/03/12
The stage adaptation of the Ealing Studios comedy The Ladykillers is set to end its run at the Gielgud Theatre on Saturday, April 14th before going on tour around the UK from Friday, September 14th.
Plymouth will host The Ladykillers first before the show heads to Canterbury, Sheffield, Birmingham, Southampton, Cambridge, Nottingham, Edinburgh, Aberdeen, Glasgow, Malvern and Bath through 2012.
There will be more dates announced for 2013.
Fans wanting to see the performance with its current cast should book a last minute trip to the capital before April, as the cast for the tour is yet to be announced and could well be different.
The show has been nominated for five awards at this year's Olivier Awards. These include Best New Play, Best Direction and Best Actress in a Play for Marcia Warren's role.
Based on the 1955 film of the same name, the black comedy follows a peculiar old lady, Mrs Wilberforce, whose new tenant, Professor Marcus, is revealed to be a gangster.
