Is anyone back from the robbery yet?

When criminal mastermind Professor Marcus and a motley crew of misfits pose as amateur musicians to rent rooms from the sweetly eccentric Mrs Wilberforce, the police have no idea that they’re planning a daring bank robbery.

But Mrs Wilberforce is not too easily deceived.

With his brilliant plot rumbled, the Professor decides there’s only one way to keep the old lady quiet – Mrs Wilberforce must face the music.

And he doesn’t mean a string quartet…

The classic Ealing Studios comedy reimagined for the stage by the creator of Father Ted, Blackbooks, and The IT Crowd.
