The Stage Play, Madea's Big Happy Family, was written, produced, directed by and stars Tyler Perry.

The story focuses on a middle-aged single mother named Miss Shirley (performed on stage by Chandra Currelley-Young), who has just received a diagnosis of terminal cancer. With the help of Madea, she assembles her grown children (and their significant others) for one final reunion, during which loyalties are tested and unpleasant truths are spilled.

Everything that happens as a result of Shirley's major announcement will either bring the family closer together or tear them apart forever.

    I LOVED the play. My favorite part is where Medea stops the play and talked to the audience. Since I saw the play, I have wanted to show it to my family, so they too can enjoy your speach. Now, all I can find is the movie. I like the interaction of the play. I was happy to find your web site so I can purchase the play and share with family and friends. I have most of the Medea movies, I love them. Keep up doing what you do so well. This play really hit home for me. God gave you a gift and you use it well!

    Hey Mr.Perry, I just saw this movie and I must say it is a very heartfelt movie. It has a lesson for everyone to learn and I'm learning more and more from you all the time. I get such a blessing from this movie and I love how you preach to everyone and tell everyone about God it's a blessing.

    I love this play!! Anything Tyler Perry does is great!!! I just want to know who wrote the song that Chandra (Shirley) Currelly sang when she passed. I love that song!!! I want that song!! Is there a soundtrack with that song on it? Thanks, Mr. Perry for the gift that you have and share with the world!! You are the only one who brings entertainment to us with lessons that tie in perfectly. There are good messages in all you do. Keep up the FANTASTIC work. As long as you are working, writing, performing, everything, you have a lifelong fan with me and my family!!! My two year old even loves your plays, he acts them out!!! Thank you!!!!

      T hank you for all your movies and plays. May God contiue to Bless you. I will MISS YOU on stage and I will be here when you get back. Now for the stage play, I brought 6 tickets for my family and forgot to buy me one. When I got to Cintas to see the play that when I discover the mistake. But they had some ticket on sale. The play came in time for my family. My Dad was pass away and it took a lot to get us from his hospital bedside. But we came and enjoy the play. My Dad pass away April 10, 2010. That why the play mean so much to us. It help us to know it ok to laugh in the mist of our pain.

    I just want to say that since I've purchase this video I have watch it everyday, I love the insight that Madea has when dealing with certain issues that goes on in a everyday family life. I love the wisdom that is carefully given to help someone that maybe in that situation know how they can approach or handle and to let people know that they are not alone in what they are going through. Mr. Perry is a very talent and bless man and I think God for creating him, and I think Mr. Perry for sharing with us what God has bless him with. I am a big Tyler Perry fan, I have all his movies and plays and soundtracks. My dream is to one time meet Mr. Perry in person. I have been to every play is brought to Columbus, Oh. and I want Mr. Perry to know how much I appreiciated and love him

    My 2 year old cousin and I have watched this play so many times we know every word to it. This play has lifted us because when my aunt passed away we were very sad and when we watched the play we got stronger especially when Chandra Currelly sung heaven waits for me we knew she was in a better place with god. We would like to thank you for this play and lifting our spirits

    Mr. Tyler Perry, I just got done watching your stage play on dvd and i laughed my head off as usual with all your dvd's. I am not able to to attend the plays live so i enjoy your movies and plays the alternative way. your movies and plays are sit down and think experiences for all who watch or attend. this play really hit me, my dad passed away suddenly on the 21st of july in 2009 from complications of a calluse that caused blood poisoning in his blood which caused his heart to stop. But the bad thing is i never got to tell him that I LOVE HIM AND ALWAYS WILL. I was 10 minutes late, ten minutes late!!!!!!. your plays and movies are inspiring and heart felt be me and all my family now and will be always be that way.

    Mr Tyler Perry. I cannot say that I have seen the play. I have seen the movie. I know that the message with in is very strong. And I know the feeling in that message. With in my family my daughter has cancer that can not be cured. Sadly our family can only wait until the day that she passes and is no longer in pain and is in a happier place. Many of your movies have touched our family with the message that you have inspired with in them. I thank you for that. God bless

    I love ALL of Tyler Perry's plays and movies, But this one, it did something to me and for me. The story line was great, the singing was awsome and the message was NEEDED. I have watched this play so many times and I still tear up at the death scene OMG, she sung that song!
