British Theatre Guide

 

"The play sensitively portrays different approaches to Islam while showing the destructive foolishness of failing to respect the rights of a woman to be true to her own beliefs. You may not agree with everything Rumi does or says but you will certainly feel like cheering her approach to life."

Ladykiller by Madeline Gould

⭐ ⭐⭐⭐⭐    Broadway Baby

"a smash hit at this fringe and beyond”

Read more...

⭐ ⭐⭐⭐⭐  The Skinny

 

“Madeline Gould's script is unflinching… Hannah McClean's bright-eyed portrayal is chilling, charming and terrifyingly believable. What is most thrilling about Ladykiller… is how the chambermaid looks and sounds just like us. She could easily be our neighbour, co-worker or friend.”  

Read more...

 

⭐ ⭐⭐⭐⭐  Three Weeks 

 

“…an eerily convincing portrait of an unhinged mind. ‘Ladykiller’ defies expectations by raising issues such as social class and the inherent sexism in the study of serial killers (all discussed through a comedic lens)" 

Read more...

⭐⭐⭐⭐    The Stage

 

“Be nice to people who work in customer service” is just one of the messages in Ladykiller, a very funny and refreshingly offbeat comedy from The Thelmas.” 

Read more...

 

⭐⭐⭐⭐    The Scotsman

 

“Hannah McClean is superb as the maid… Her disarming smile is Cheshire Cattish, sometimes shark-like – enough to make you think twice next time you leave your hotel room in a state.” 

 

⭐⭐⭐⭐     The List

 

“pokes at the optimism of feminist beliefs in equality and the innate compassion of women in a bracing… monologue of fierce intensity.”

⭐⭐⭐⭐    FringeGuru

⭐⭐⭐⭐    Miro Magazine

Read more...

⭐⭐⭐⭐   Mind The Blog

"A compelling one-woman show that explores the imbalance between the sexes for a deadly purpose – Hannah McClean is breathtaking."

Exeunt Magazine

"Ladykiller is a surprisingly enjoyable fifty minutes, with a political bite beneath the surface of its humour...a hilariously dark comic monologue, delivered with aplomb by performer Hannah McLean."

RevStan

"Her is a perverse figurehead for female empowerment and it is that darkness and contradiction that I loved."
