“A hotel room, a chambermaid, a dead woman... it's not what it looks like. ”





The Thelmas


A chambermaid, a hotel room 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 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…

Ladykiller is a blood-soaked morality tale about social responsibility, zero-hours contracts and tearing up the gender rule book on psychopathy; a jet-black comedy for the age of the gig economy.

Ladykiller presents us with a genuinely complex and compelling female character, tapping into the feminist zeitgeist in a most unexpected way.

LADYKILLER comes hot on the heels of The Thelmas' London run and National tour of hit show, the twice OFFIE nominated Coconut by Guleraana Mir, produced by The Thelmas in association with Ovalhouse Theatre, with the support of In Good Company, the East Midlands flagship artist development programme.

The current production of Ladykiller is the result of research, development and support from Oldham Coliseum and Ovalhouse Theatre.

Admission: £6.50 – £11(£10)
