*This show has been cancelled*

In light of the current situation we are saddened to announce that this show has been cancelled. 

We are asking all our audiences that if your show is cancelled that you consider using this opportunity to support local artists and the theatre by waiving a refund in light of a charitable donation to Theatre Deli Sheffield. However we absolutely understand if you are unable to so please send a refund request and we will process this for you.

Alternatively you can also donate straight to our crowdfunder here:  https://www.gofundme.com/f/play-your-role

It’s a scary time for small charities and businesses so we appreciate everyone’s support and hope this continues in the coming months. We’re looking at setting up gift cards that can be used at a later date.

Thank you for your understanding at this time and we all hope you're taking care of yourselves. Stay safe- Theatre Deli Sheffield.


A hotel room, a chambermaid 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...
After rave reviews and sold out shows at Edinburgh Fringe 2018 and Vault Festival 2019, Ladykiller is a blood- soaked morality tale about victimhood, power and flipping the gender rule book on psychopathy. Charting one woman’s journey from violent oppression to bloody revolution, it is the (gruesome) quintessential jet-black comedy for the age of the gig economy.

Ages 16+

About the Company:

The Thelmas formed in response to a growing need for the support and development of new female writers. We believe that female-led work should exist on its own merits as artistically excellent theatre, and not be seen as somehow niche. We are passionate about promoting stories which disrupt traditional female narratives and committed to telling intersectional stories. The Thelmas an Ovalhouse Associate Artist 2019-2021.
