4-Stars “slickly realised revival” The Herald


“excellent…the sheer pleasure of watching the set go through its spectacular paces is probably worth the ticket-price in itself” The Scotsman


“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 "A performance that is as poignant as it is comic . . . Pitlochry delights in playing up the heightened reality in Linehan’s production . . . Ken Harrison’s set, a painstakingly detailed cutaway that revolves to show us the street and railway sidings of Kings Cross station, is like something from one of Roald Dahl’s children’s books. " The Times


 “A phenomenal set… five stars to the designer for this fabulous creation” The Courier


“presented beautifully…a lovely cast exemplifies the professionalism of another handsome Pitlochry production.” The Sunday Herald


“An exuberantly inventive evening.” The Guardian
