“Being fooled by art is one of the primary pleasures afforded to the middle classes.”

 

The classic Ealing Studios comedy from1955 gets an entirely new lease of life . . .


In order to pull off a brilliantly conceived robbery at King’s Cross Station, a motley crew of criminal misfits pose as amateur musicians needing rehearsal space and take rooms in the lopsided lodgings of the sweet, eccentric Miss Wilberforce.


But whilst the police are blissfully ignorant of the sophisticated heist being planned under their very noses, Miss Wilberforce - who has a history of “noticing” suspicious goings-on in the neighbourhood - is not so easily deceived. So the gang’s criminal mastermind, the disturbed (and disturbing) Professor Marcus, decides that Miss Wilberforce must face the music. And he doesn’t mean a string quartet . . .


This brand new adaptation of the Ealing classic, written by Graham Linehan, the BAFTA and Emmy-award winning television comedy writer and director (co-creator and writer of Father Ted, Black Books and The IT Crowd) had both the critics and audiences in raptures during its recent smash-hit West End run. PFT is delighted to be staging the Scottish première production of this brilliant new/old comedy!

 

4-Stars “This is no pale stage rip-off but a new-written piece of perfection.” The Times

 

“An exuberantly inventive evening.” The Guardian
