The Lavender Hill Mob

Thu 13th - Sat 22nd Oct

The men who broke the bank and lost the cargo are back!

A brand new, hilarious adaptation of the classic Ealing Comedy The Lavender Hill Mob will be opening in Cheltenham prior to a national tour!

Come and see one of the nation's favourite films brought to life on stage in a brand new adaptation by the Olivier-nominated playwright Phil Porter, directed by Tony and Olivier-nominated Jeremy Sams and starring Miles Jupp (The Thick of It, Rev, The Durrells, Why Didn't They Ask Evans?) and Justin Edwards (The Thick of It, Black Books, Veep, Father Brown).

This side-splittingly funny, fast paced comedy tells the story of Henry Holland, an unassuming bank clerk who dreams of stealing the gold bullions he transports across London each day.

When Henry learns that his new lodger makes Eiffel Tower paperweights out of lead, he devises a plan to make his dream a reality. It's a golden opportunity to pull off the crime of the century, they'd have to be fools to mess it up...

Written by T.E.B. Clarke, directed by Charles Chrichton and starring comedy legends Alec Guiness and Sid James, The Lavender Hill Mob was released by Ealing Studios in 1951 to critical acclaim. The film was the winner of the Best Original Screenplay Oscar and was ranked in the BFI's top twenty greatest British films of all time. 

Come and rediscover this much-loved classic in the brand-new stage play that promises to be the most fun night out of the year!
