The LadyKillers (Festival Theatre)
After taking the West End by storm, this deliciously macabre comedy now has its North American premiere.
Is it really so hard to kill one little old lady? Based on one of the best-loved British films of all time (featuring Alec Guinness), this comedy tour-de-force is set in post-World War II London where five oddball crooks pose as an amateur string quintet in order to rent a room from a little old lady. It is supposed to be the nerve centre for their greatest ever heist, but things soon start to get complicated. Even then, these hardened criminals only need to commit one easy murder to get clean away with the loot. But are they up to it?
Rope (Royal George Theatre)
They got away with murder. Now, why tempt fate? A psychological thriller directed by Alfred Hitchcock, that will keep you on the edge of your seat.
Murder comes home to the Royal George. Two college students in 1920s London commit murder and host a party for the victim’s friends with his hidden body as the centerpiece … just to see if they can pull it off. Masterfully written, this gripping psychological thriller — directed for the silver screen by Alfred Hitchcock — will have you on the edge of your seat. Can they hold their nerve? Can you?
