A Date for Mad Mary is out on DVD and On Demand on 3rd February.
A Date For Mad Mary tells the story of ‘Mad’ Mary McArdle returning 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.
Hailed by Film Ireland as “beautifully written, directed, performed and shot”, A Date For Mad Mary is a tough, tender and funny story about friendship, first love, and letting go of the glory days.
Directed by Darren Thornton, it stars Seána Kerslake (Can’t Cope/Won’t Cope), Tara Lee (The Fall, Raw) and Charleigh Bailey.
