Founded in 1924, the Wilmslow Green Room Society is one of the oldest Amateur Dramatic Societies in the UK. In the beginning we were strolling players performing wherever a venue could be found. In 1989, after a superb fund raising effort, a victorian cottage and an old shirt factory were converted into a modern theatre.
Our programme of is chosen to provide a varied and challenging season of plays, using innovative and adventurous stage designs, well supported by local people.


The Ladykillers by Graham Linehan

The Ladykillers is a stage adaptation based on the Ealing comedy film of the same name. It’s a classic black comedy; a sweet little old lady, alone in her house, is pitted against a gang of criminal misfits who will stop at nothing. Posing as amateur musicians, Professor Marcus and his gang rent rooms in the lopsided house of sweet but strict Mrs Wilberforce. The villains plot to involve her, unwittingly, in Marcus’ brilliantly conceived heist job. The police are left stumped but Mrs Wilberforce becomes wise to their ruse and Marcus concludes that there is only one way to keep the old lady quiet. With only her parrot, General Gordon, to help her, Mrs Wilberforce is alone with five desperate men. But who will be forced to face the music?
