Why See Tyler Perrys Madea's Farewell?
Bid A Fond Farewell To The Meddling Matriarch
For nearly two decades, Mabel Earlene 'Medea' Simmons has entertained audiences on stage and screen in over 10 feature films and 21 of theatre shows with her hilarious meddling, hijinks and antics, becoming a beloved part of families across America in her own right. Now the multi-talented producer, writer and actor Tyler Perry is set to don her signature gray wig, glasses and nondescript floral dress for the last time during the 'Madea's Farewell Play Tour', saying a fond goodbye to the tough old lady with a brand new story chock full of laughs and life lessons.
Exploring themes of race, poverty, love, sexual assault and the ties that bind, the popular Madea franchise began with the 199 play I Can Do Bad All By Myself, which first introduced the world to the incorrigible, curmudgeonly, vindictive and completely loveable matriarch who would do anything for her family. The farewell play sees a joyful family reunion go totally awry when Madea and her crew travel to Georgia to plan a funeral, where skeletons fall out of the closet and family secrets bubble to the surface.
Performance date: 19 February 2019
