The Beauty Queen of Leenane
by Martin McDonagh
24 June to 3 July 2021
A darkly humorous play from the award-winning playwright, screenwriter and director, Martin McDonagh (In Bruges and Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri). Set in the mountains of Connemara, County Galway, McDonagh’s debut play tells the tale of Maureen Folan, a plain and lonely spinster in her early forties, and Mag her devilishly manipulative ageing mother whose interference in Maureen's first - and potentially last - loving relationship sets in motion a train of events that is as funny as it is unsettling. Maureen might long for the romance that will spirit her away, but if she goes, who will stir the lumps out of Mag's Complan?
