1st Night Photos: New Ladykillers party with comedy pals
Larry Lamb, Summer Strallen, Rupert Penry-Jones, Dervla Kirwan and Sheridan Smith were among those celebrating the return of Graham Linehan's WhatsOnStage award-winning The Ladykillers to the West End last night (9 July 2013)
Based on the 1955 BAFTA-winning comedy which starred Alec Guinness, The Ladykillers sees the life of an eccentric old lady turned upside down by an unlikely group of criminals. Planning the heist of a security van, they decide to use her as cover and involve her unwittingly in the plot. Things do not go well and start to unravel in spectacular and hilarious fashion.
John Gordon Sinclair will play the gang leader Professor Marcus, with Simon Day as Major Courtney, Ralf Little as Harry, Con O'Neill as Louis and Angela Thorne as Mrs Wilberforce.
