‘As funny, flawed and foulmouthed as its irresistible central character, "A Date for Mad Mary" makes an absolute show of itself, and it is wonderful’ – Variety
Seána Kerslake gives the performance of the festival (possibly the performance of the year) as 'Mad' Mary McArdle, a young woman trying to slot back into her Irish backwater existence after being released from prison. She’s walked straight back into maid-of-honour duties at her best friend’s wedding and she’s scrounging for a date so she can prove she’s not the total lost cause everyone thinks she is. Stocked with talent and shot through with wry observational heart, A Date for Mad Mary is a well worth cancelling your plans for.
Proudly presented by Herbert Smith Freehills.
