Join the suave, sinister Professor Marcus and his oddball crew of criminal accomplices as thy plot the train robbery of a lifetime and then fight to stay one step ahead of the law, each other and Mrs Wilberforce, the sweet, little old lady they are lodging with.
The 1955 Ealing Comedy classic, starring Alec Guinness and Peter Sellers, is on many people’s list of favourite films. Adapted by Graham Linehan, writer of TV’s side-splitting sitcom Father Ted, the stage play mixes jet black humour with screwball comedy to produce hilarious results.
Presented by the group that brought you The Female Odd Couple, Blankets, Oleanna and It Happened One Night.
