The multi-award-winning Brendan O’Carroll and Mrs. Brown’s Boys have announced their much-loved classic play ‘Mrs. Brown Rides Again’ will return to the UK stage for the first time in 10 years.
Written by and starring Brendan O’Carroll as the beloved “Mammy”, the classic ‘Mrs. Brown Rides Again’ follows Agnes Brown and her dysfunctional family romp their way through what seems to be the Mammy’s last days at home. After hearing a plot, by her children, to have her put into a home, Agnes decides to prove them wrong by displaying a new lease of life. However, this is not going to be as easy as it seems as along the way she must deal with a psychiatrist trying to put her in her place, her neighbours wait for a heart bypass, and worst of all, a family secret that everyone seems to know except her.
The new live tour follows the news that Mrs. Brown’s Boys is set to return to BBC One & BBC iPlayer for a new mini-series. A regular feature of Christmas schedules for over a decade, this marks the first mini-series run since 2013 with four new episodes set to delight fans which will transmission later this year. All 43 previous episodes of MRS. BROWN’S BOYS are available to enjoy on BBC iPlayer whilst viewers await the new episodes.
Mrs. Brown’s Boys success has been nothing short of incredible. Voted the No. 1 Sitcom of the 21st Century, awards include 5 BAFTAs, 4 National Television Awards, 3 TV Choice Awards, 4 IFTA awards, 3 TVTimes Awards as well as RTS, TRIC and National Comedy Awards.
BBC ONE series All Round to Mrs. Brown’s continues to achieve record breaking viewing figures and Mrs. Brown’s Boys Christmas Day and New Year’s Day TV specials also returned for the festive period dominating ratings once again. Live, Mrs. Brown’s Boys has broken box office records across the UK, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand and Canada.
