Comedy, Drama



Running time


‘Mad’ Mary McArdle (Seána Kerslake) returns to Drogheda after a short spell in prison – for something she’d rather forget. Back home, everything and everyone has changed. Her best friend, Charlene, is about to get married and Mary is maid of honour. When Charlene refuses Mary a ‘plus one’ on the grounds that she probably couldn’t find a date, Mary becomes determined to prove her wrong. Her attempts at dating are a disaster and she winds up feeling more alone… until she meets Jess and everything changes. ‘A Date for Mad Mary’ is a tough and tender story about friendship, first love, and letting go of the glory days.
