Award winning classic British comedy based on the much-loved 1955 film. Crime doesn’t pay – but it can be hilarious! Since 1955, the classic comedy film has entertained audiences worldwide and is now transformed into a multi-award winning play by Graham Linehan, co-creator of Father Ted and The IT crowd. Criminal mastermind, Professor Marcus, and his gang of oddball villains posing as musicians, meet their match when they take up residence in Mrs Wilberforce’s dilapidated house. They figure their sweet-natured old landlady will be easily hoodwinked. But beneath her demure exterior, Mrs Wilberforce is made of sterner stuff and, in the end, she turns the tables on the bogus quintet. Crime doesn’t pay –but it can be hilarious!
