Matinee Performance Confirmed
2.00pm Saturday 30th June 2012


Starring Brendan O’Carroll and Mrs Brown’s Boys

Due to unprecedented demand an additional Newcastle performance has been confirmed at the Metro Radio Arena as 2.00pm Saturday 30th June 2012 offering a matinee performance of the sensational Mrs Brown’s Boys returning now for six hilarious performances from Tuesday 26th – Saturday 30th June 2012. ‘Mrs Brown Rides Again’ written by and starring Brendan O’Carroll is part of the hilarious series and will head across the UK to some of the country’s biggest arenas.

‘Mrs Brown Rides Again’ follows the phenomenal success of Sunday’s BAFTAs with a nomination in the Serial Comedy category for TV series Mrs Brown’s Boys on BBC ONE.

Mrs Brown Trilogy of plays (there’s five) is written by and stars Brendan O’Carroll as Mrs Agnes Brown. Audiences in the North of England and Scotland first discovered Mrs Brown over ten years ago, when Mrs Brown went on to break box office records in Liverpool, Manchester, Birmingham, Newcastle, Sunderland, Glasgow and Edinburgh. The current tour ‘Good Mourning Mrs Brown’ has amassed over 50 shows to rapturous audiences and to rave reviews with more shows continuing this December through to April 2012.

‘Mrs Brown Rides Again’ follows on the heels of ‘Good Mourning Mrs Brown’; 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 for along the way she must deal with a psychiatrist trying to put her in her place… or maybe away, her son’s gay partner who wants to give birth, her neighbour’s wait for a heart bypass and worst of all, a family secret that everyone seems to know except her.

Mrs Brown’s Boys TV series made its debut on BBC ONE in February of this year and proved an automatic ratings smash for Mrs Agnes Brown, so much so that Auntie Beeb has already commissioned a second series which will return later this year. Brendan O’Carroll has attributed his TV series’ success to the economic climate and to the British audience’s yearning for better times.
