A hilarious new one woman comedy based on everyone’s Ma.
The Odyssey Cinemas has teamed up with Northern Ireland based theatre company, Gambit Theatre Company, to bring to the stage ‘The Belfast Ma: Away Play Round Your Own Door’. A new one women comedy show based on internet sensation The Belfast Ma (Sarah ‘Sadie’ Devine) created by comedy duo Tom Rowntree-Finlay and Thomas McCorry.
The show stars Northern Irelands favourite drag artist Tina Leggs Tantrum as Sadie and will be performed Live in front of the Screen at the Odyssey, Belfast’s largest cinemas, in March 2020.
‘The Belfast Ma: Away Play Round Your Own Door’ tells the story of a wee Belfast Street. The people, the secrets, the craic, the neighbours, the families, the husband and, of course, the bingo. As seen from the eyes of wee Sarah ‘Sadie’ Devine. Sitting on her front step, having a wee feg and vodka; Sadie chats away to her neighbours Patricia, Theresa, Wee Anto, Big fat Maureen and Dirty Gerty, finding out all the biz of the day.
