Following sell-out shows in Glasgow, Belfast and Dublin, the smash hit comedy, Fifty One Shades of Maggie, is about to tour Scotland.
It will be performed at the Whitehall Theatre, Dundee on October 23 and 24.
It is set to become one of the funniest shows to hit UK stages in years as it embarks on the first 27-venue tour of the country, with ‘Gary: Tank Commander’ star Leah MacRae taking the lead role.
Initially written by Leesa Harker as a Facebook-based spoof blog of the best-selling ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’, the blog was so well received in its own right that it went viral, reaching tens of thousands of followers in a matter of days, and has been specifically adapted for the stage. The play first hit the Belfast stage in January 2013, selling out all 9,000 seats, and went on to perform extended runs in Dublin and Glasgow.
‘Fifty One Shades of Maggie’ tells the story of the lovable Maggie Muff and her search for love. A working-class girl, Maggie – like most women – has been let down by all the men in her life. As she attends an interview at the Social Security Office, Maggie meets the handsome and hunky Mr. Big, who could just be the man of her dreams - or will his ‘Private Room of Pain’ put her off?
This hilarious new play, filled with naughty bits, will have ‘girls’ nights out’ audiences laughing hard as they join Maggie and her friends on this (ever-so-slightly-filthy) journey of love, booze and whips!
‘Fifty One Shades of Maggie’ is touring Scottish theatres this autumn and will be showing at the Whitehall Theatre, Dundee, on Wednesday, October 23 and Thursday, October 24.

The tour starts at the Whitehall Theatre before taking in Stirling, Largs, Inverness, Aberdeen, Ayr, Stranraer, Greenock, Glasgow and Glenrothes, finishing off on November 21 to 23 at Perth Theatre.
The Belfast Telegraph said of the show “…made us laugh ‘til we cried… two hours flashed past amid great hilarity…” whilst the Irish News wrote “Hilarious… do yourself a favour, get a ticket… the joy is in the outrageous script…”
Culture Northern Ireland commented “…a lot of fun… hilarious… left the audience pumped up and proud…”.
