The Hasland Theatre company have been around since our first production in 1944 and we are an amateur theatre group based in our own 100 seat Theatre, The Playhouse on Storforth Lane in Hasland (Where Else?!). Our current production season runs from September to May each year and we perform 5 plays per season.
We are always looking for new talent to join the company either on the stage or helping behind the scenes, you can find more information in our section for New Members, message us on Facebook or give us a tweet to @HaslandTheatre.
A comedy by Graham Linehan
Performances on 16th and 17th, 19th to 24th January 2015 @ 7.30pm
THE LADYKILLERS (WhatsOnStage.com Awards Best New Comedy) written by Graham Linehan (Father Ted) tells the classic black comedy tale of a sweet little old lady, alone in her house, pitted against a gang of criminal misfits who will stop at nothing. Posing as amateur musicians, Professor Marcus and his gang rent rooms in the lopsided house of sweet but strict Mrs Wilberforce. The villains plot to involve her unwittingly in Marcus’ brilliantly conceived heist job.
The police are left stumped but Mrs Wilberforce becomes wise to their ruse and Marcus concludes that there is only one way to keep the old lady quiet. With only her parrot, General Gordon, to help her, Mrs W. is alone with five desperate men. But who will be forced to face the music?
