This simple tale of deception, farce, inept gangsters and tea

It's a way off but it will be worth the wait when it arrives later in the year - if your not familiar with the plaot then

The eccentric Mrs Wilberforce lives in a lopsided Victorian house over London's King's Cross railway tunnel, with just her parrot General Gordon for company. When she decides to let her spare room, the mysterious Professor Marcus moves in; but he may not be the fine upstanding gentleman he appears to be...

As she provides an endless supply of tea and cake to the Professor and his motley crew of 'musicians', how long can the gang continue to pull the crocheted wool over this seemingly naïve little old lady's eyes?

This really is an exciting new adaptation of the classic Ealing Comedy The Ladykillers is by Graham Linehan (Father Ted, The IT Crowd, Black Books) and directed by multi-award winning director Sean Foley (Play What I Wrote, Ducktastic, The Right Size).

The stellar cast for this world première includes the BAFTA and British Comedy Award winning Peter Capaldi (The Thick of It, In The Loop, Skins) as Professor Marcus with Ben Miller (Armstrong and Miller), James Fleet (Four Weddings and a Funeral, The Vicar of Dibley, Little Dorrit), Olivier Award winner Clive Rowe (Guys and Dolls, Carousel), Olivier Award winner Marcia Warren as Mrs Wilberforce and rising talent Stephen Wight (Whites, The Habit of Art, Dealer's Choice).

Book early but you'll have to wait a few months

I think i know who will be reviewing this one.
