Mrs Brown’s Boys is back with ‘much-loved classic play’ touring across the north

A new mini-series of Mrs Brown’s Boys has also been announced, returning to BBC One and BBC iPlayer.

The play will be visiting Hull, Manchester and other nearby cities later this year.

Mrs Brown’s Boys is returning to theatres across the UK this autumn, taking Mrs Brown Rides Again back on tour.

For the first time in 10 years, the ‘much-loved classic play’ written by and starring Brendan O’Carroll will be hitting the live stage, reports The Manc.

Mrs Brown Rides Again is based on the hit sitcom Mrs Brown’s Boys, which follows loud-mouthed Irish matriarch Agnes Brown (or ‘Mammy’) and her six children.

The play itself follows the dysfunctional family after Agnes learns that her children plan to have her put in a home.

While trying to prove that she has a new lease of life, she’s faced with a psychiatrist trying to put her in her place, a neighbour waiting for a heart bypass, and a family secret that everyone seems to know except her.

A new mini-series of Mrs Brown’s Boys has also been announced, returning to BBC One and BBC iPlayer.

It will be the first mini-series in more than a decade following years of regular Christmas specials, which usually dominate viewing ratings.

Over the years, the sitcom has been awarded five BAFTAs, four National Television Awards, three TV Choice Awards, four IFTA awards, three TV Times Awards as well as RTS, TRIC and National Comedy Awards.

On the new tour, Brendan O Carroll said: “The Pandemic is gone, and Mrs Brown is back. It doesn’t get any better.”

Mrs. Brown Rides Again will be at the Manchester Opera House between 30 August and 2 September this year.

Tickets go on sale Friday 24 March at 10am from

You’ll also be able to catch Mrs. Brown Rides Again in Hull on Friday 27 and Saturday 28 October 2023.
