They’re the moments that break us.

They’re the moments that make us – put ourselves

back together again "

City Theatre Dublin & MCD presented the World Premiere of Cecelia Ahern's funny,  heartwarming and moving first play, MRS. WHIPPY brings Emelda O'Grady to life in a "tour de Force" performance by MARY McEVOY.

This moving, heart-warming, and funny piece focuses on Emelda O’Grady, a 46 year old woman dealing with five difficult sons, a split marriage and a new job. 
The soothing sounds of a Mr. Whippy van arrive at just the right time for Emelda, only now it’s not just the ice-cream that is her only true friend...

Cecelia Ahern mixes laughter with tears in equal measure to create this humorous portrait of a woman finding her own place in the world. A lovely joyous journey through this woman's life
