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-honor 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.

“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
