'The Beauty Queen of Leenane' | 15th February - 22nd February 2020

Synopsis: Probably best known for his screenwriting after last years Oscar winning Three Billboards outside Epping Missouri, Beauty Queen is one of Martin McDonagh’s early plays. Set in a backwater village in the west of Ireland, The Beauty Queen of Leenane tells the darkly comic tale of Maureen Folan, a plain and lonely woman in her early forties, who takes care of Mag, her manipulative and insufferable mother. The story follows their mundane, spiteful and vindictive relationship, in this often laugh out loud comedy, where we are also introduced to neighbour Ray Dooley. Then an old beau , Ray’s older brother, Pato, comes to town, offering to steal our lonely heroine away. Maureen’s first, and potentially last, loving relationship with a man , sets in motion a train of events that is as gothically funny as it is horrific. Then everything goes feck..g insane.
