Description

Tara Lynne O’Neill (Ma Mary from Derry Girls) stars as Paula in this fast paced, dark comedy antidote to all the usual festive cheer.

It’s Christmas eve and Paula has a list, she’s checked it twice. She has the cosy flat, the car and the career..now all she wants for Christmas is the ring!
Her boyfriend has other ideas though and she ends up back ‘on the shelf’. Faced with spending a lifetime of Christmases alone, she decides to peel off the spanx, pour a drink or twelve and dish the dirt on love, life and turning 40. Like the rest of Paula’s night though, things don’t go quite to plan with the arrival of an unusual house guest (Chris Robinson). Want to find out what would happen if Bridget Jones lived in Belfast and fed a Gremlin after midnight?
Join On the Shelf for this fast paced, laugh out loud Belfast cracker.
