Posh Tramps and Papooses is the latest play from Manchester’s celebrated MaD Theatre Company. The story follows the Longbottom family from Bury, head of the family is Ma who has recently divorced her ‘wife’ in Bury’s first ever same sex civil split, however, undeterred, and in an attempt to put that behind her Ma is now looking for a fella on the internet.

She meets Hector the Metro Link Inspector on UniformDating.com who promises her and her dysfunctional family a holiday of a lifetime… to Chorlton… on the tram! A hilarious look as cultures collide where black pudding meets Hummus of the week!

Hot on the heels of their recent success at The Met, Gin and Chronic Arthritis, MaD Theatre’s newest production is a return to their unique blend of surreal political satire and downright barmyness made famous by their previous plays such as ASBO, Thai Brides and Teacakes and Les Puddings Noir.
