There’s nothing quite like a good, loving, mother-daughter relationship.

ABOUT THIS SHOW

Already heralded as a modern classic of Irish theatre, The Beauty Queen of Leenane is set in the mountains of Connemara and tells the story of Maureen Folan, a plain and lonely woman in her early 40s, and Mag, her manipulative, aging mother. Mag’s interference in Maureen’s first and potentially last romantic relationship sets in motion a chain of events that are as tragically funny as they are horrific. McDonagh's script expertly teases out dramatic ironies in a tightly twisting plot to great suspense and excruciating comic effect.

When The Beauty Queen of Leenane first took North America by storm in 1990, it quickly transferred to Broadway, where it proceeded to win four Tony Awards and became the first in a rapid-fire streak of black comedies from Martin McDonagh. A newcomer to theatre at the time, McDonagh is now a multi-award winner for both theatre and film work, including his Oscar-nominated screenplay Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri.
