FOR a fairytale of a different kind this Christmas, especially for grown-ups, join Bridie Murphy on the search for her Belfast Prince Charming in ‘A Christmas Night With George’ at Theatre at The Mill, Newtownabbey.
If the comedy sell-out ‘A Night With George’ is anything to go by, the festive update will have its audiences laughing from start to finish once again as they spend a comical night in with Bridie, lighting up the Christmas tree Belfast style.
The one woman show, which stars Belfast’s own Donna O’Connor, follows Bridie at Christmas as she settles down with her stolen cardboard cut-out of George Clooney and quickly draws the audience into the story of her life as she tells George the hilarious tales of Christmas past, present and future, with sharp humour and classic songs with a hilarious Belfast twist.
George is the man of Bridie’s dreams, even if the closest she’ll ever get to him is her cardboard cut-out.
However, Bridie has always been unlucky in love and she doesn’t hesitate to tell George about the succession of new men in her life every Christmas whilst being a single mother.
Donna, who co-wrote the production alongside Brenda Murphy, said: “Most Christmases the only men in Bridie’s life were the snowmen she built but in this updated festive version audiences will find out if Bridie will get a man this Christmas and live happily ever after, or if will she be spending Christmas night alone with George?”
‘A Christmas Night With George’ runs at Theatre at The Mill from Tuesday, December 18 until Saturday, January 5.
