DUDLEY Little Theatre is bringing its 72nd season to a close with black comedy The Ladykillers.

The show will run at Netherton Arts Centre, Northfield Road, Netherton, from Wednesday May 15 to Saturday May 18.

Adapted by Father Ted author Graham Lineham and based on the 1955 Ealing comedy starring Alec Guinness, The Ladykillers focuses on an inept gang of criminals who rent a room in the home of sweet old Mrs Wilberforce who thinks they are a group of musicians. From there they hatch a plan to execute a daring security van raid at King’s Cross Station but things go not quite go as planned.

Performances start at 7.30pm each night.

Tickets cost £9 (£8 concessions) and can be bought through Dudley Little Theatre’s website at www.dudleylittletheatre.org, or on the door on the night.

They can also be reserved by calling 01384 872583, 07582 318017 or 07954 424555.
