A spoof of the best selling Fifty Shades of Grey comes to Grimsby Auditorium this month as part of a national tour.

Following sell-out shows in Glasgow, Belfast and Dublin earlier this year, the smash hit comedy, Fifty-One Shades of Maggie, starring former Emmerdale star Adele Silva, takes to the Grimsby stage on Thursday, October 10.

The play tells the story of the loveable Maggie Muff and her search for love.

A working-class girl, Maggie 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?

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

Tickets cost £20 and due to the strong language and themes of an adult nature, the show is deemed unsuitable for anyone under the age of 16. Call the box office on 0844 871 3016.
