The Ladykillers at Hull Truck

At the weekend we went to see The Ladykillers at Hull Truck. It's a play based on a film. Which was based on a film. Or something. The script is written by Graham Linehan of Father Ted fame.

Is that enough links for you?

Anyhoo, the play was great. We seem to be re-discovering live theatre at the moment, we've been twice in almost as many weeks. The Hull Truck is a great venue and we've discovered that if you sit right at the back, on the high seats, you get loads of legroom of the straight down variety and a commanding view of the stage. The theatre space is very intimate and nobody is very far from the performers. We're scanning the programme for the next thing to go and see.

The Ladykillers, a tale of dishonour amongst thieves and a most unlikely heroine, is a hoot with great performances from all. It's in Hull for the next week or so. Go see it. You'll have fun.
