The Phoenix Players presents

"The Ladykillers" by Graham Linehan

A classic combination of black comedy and slapstick farce directed by Colin Wilkins.

Wednesday 24 to Saturday 27 January 2018.

At the Arts Centre, Devizes Road, Swindon at 7.30pm.

A classic combination of black comedy and slapstick farce, it is broadly based on the 1955 Ealing comedy film of the same name, but on stage The Ladykillers has a combination of style, warmth and darkness that only live theatre can bring. This is a "must see" for keen theatre-goers
