Joint winner of Best Irish Feature at the 2016 Galway Film Fleadh, A Date for Mad Mary centers on the exceptional performance by lead actress Seana Kerslake. Upon release following a six month prison sentence, Mary returns home to Drogheda, eager to reunite with best friend Charlene, for whom she is about to act as a maid of honor.
Annoyed by Charlene’s assumption that she won’t have a date for the wedding, Mary joins a dating agency, embarking on a series of disastrous encounters before events take an unexpected turn.
