Based on a novella by bestselling author Cecilia Ahern, Mrs Whippy is a new play which will be staged at The Royal Castlebar Theatre and Event Centre on Thursday, February 5.
Emelda is a 46-year-old, 220 pound, mother of five, struggling to cope with life after her husband left her for a 23-year-old dancer. It’s summer time and as she eats her way through another tub of ice-cream mourning all that she’s lost, she hears the gentle tinkling sound that sends children rushing outside. 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.
