THE Phoenix Players are performing The Ladykillers at the Swindon Arts Centre this week.

The play by Graham Linehan tells how criminal mastermind Professor Marcus and his gang of oddball villains pose as musicians to plan a heist but meet their match in landlady Mrs Wilberforce, when they take up residence in the top floor room of her dilapidated house.

It seems a convenient location to plan their heist, and they think their sweet-natured old landlady will be easily hoodwinked - but is this actually the case?

The play runs till Saturday, with performances starting at 7.30pm.

Tickets are £11. To book, visit or call 07517 698083.
