The Beauty Queen Of Leenane

The Beauty Queen of Leenane

By Martin McDonagh

Directed by Maureen Dwyer
Produced by Michelle Spanik

Set in the village of Leenane in impoverished rural Ireland, this play title conjures up an image of Irish folklore, love and happy endings – nothing could be further from the truth. Although sometimes referred to as a comedy, it is also a ‘hit you where it hurts’ shocker. There is plenty of humour as well thanks to the deftly written, darkly poignant script. If you want an evening of intense theatre, this is the play for you.

Fueled by a poisonous mother-daughter relationship, the play grabs you and sucks out all hope. This play is not for the faint of heart, but it is an expertly crafted play It makes for an exciting evening of theatre that may well shock you.

The play centers around Maureen, a long suffering, 40 year old caring for her aging mother, Mag, who is best described as toxic, possibly even psychotic. The story twists and turns to keep our interest.

Please note this play contains mature content & strong language
