by Graham Linehan, at Nantwich Players' Theatre on the
Waterlode / Pillory Street car park (CW5 5BH), Friday,
July 5 to 13 (except Sunday 7), at 7.45pm. There will be
a Matinee performance at 2.30pm on Saturday, July 13.
The play is a spoof of the classic 1955 Ealing Comedy which
starred Alec Guiness and is taken from the motion picture
screenplay by William Rose. It tells of an eccentric little
old lady who lives alone with her raucous parrot in a
strange lopsided house in King's Cross, London. A group of
five men, who make the most unlikely group of criminals,
turn her life upside down when they decide to use her as a
cover for their heist of a security van.
Graham Linehan is the writer of the television programme,
