Preview: A Happy Medium

May McFettridge stars in this hilarious comedy, A Happy Medium, about the known and the unknown as a woman who knew nothing in the first place.

May was a woman from the Glens of Gormley with big ideas. She wanted to make contact with her dead sister to fulfil a promise made years ago on the top of the Cave Hill.

Regardless of the feelings of her two daughters, Audrey and Emma, she enlisted the help of Mr Proudfoot, a part time medium from Carrickfergus.

Their combined dabblings in the spirit world produced a chain of hilarious events, unlocked hidden powers and family secrets, and ensured that no one escaped the ‘ghosts of the past’.

May McFettridge (John Linehan) brings to the part all the warmth, comedy and feeling for flawed humanity she is famous for is is joined on stage with Olivia Nash (aka ‘Ma’ from The Hole in the Wall Gang) whose character Mrs Cameron gets a reading from May.  All will be revealed in this hilariously funny show, which will be touring theatres in Northern Ireland in April.
