Show Pics: Ladykillers Make Liverpool Debut Ahead of West End
Date: 9 November 2011
Graham Linehan's stage adaptation of Ealing comedy The Ladykillers opened its try-out run at the Liverpool Playhouse last night (8 November, previews from 3 November) ahead of its West End dates at the Gielgud Theatre from 7 December 2011 (previews from 26 November).
Directed by Sean Foley, the production features an all-star cast of James Fleet, Peter Capaldi, Ben Miller, Clive Rowe and Stephen Wight. Unwitting widow Mrs Wilberforce - who finds herself embroiled with an unlikely group of criminals planning the heist of a security van - is played by two-time Olivier Award-winning actress Marcia Warren.
The show's producers have released images of the Liverpool production, which continues until 19 November 2011.
