LADYKILLER - 5 star **** hit show!

The Thelmas and house present


by Madeline Gould
Directed by Madelaine Moore

Thursday 10th February 2022

A hotel room, a maid and a dead woman. It’s not what it looks like, really, it’s not. It was self defence… and anyway, the woman was asking for it.

The chambermaid considers herself to be a pretty normal person; she goes to the cinema. She reads books. She pretended to read the party manifestos at the General Election. She’s even read The Psychopath Test and she’s pretty sure she’s not one so…

Winner of the 2019 Pleasance VAULT award, ‘blood-curdling shriek of a smash hit’ Ladykiller was a sell out at Edinburgh Fringe 2018 and Vault Festival 2019. A blood-soaked morality tale about victimhood, power and flipping the gender rule book on psychopathy. A (gruesome) quintessential, jet-black comedy for the age of the gig economy.

Ticket Prices: Standard £13.00 | Concession £11.00

Running time: approximately 65 minutes. There is no interval

Age recommendation: 16+ Strong language, adult content.
This play contains complex themes of murder, assault and abuses of power, graphic visual representations of blood, and graphic descriptions of violence and autopsy.
