The Beauty Queen of Leenane

The Beauty Queen of Leenane

June 13-15, 21-22, 28-29

Set in a dingy cottage in a remote part of Galway, The Beauty Queen of Leenane tells the darkly comic tale of Maureen Folan, a lonely woman in her early forties, and her aging and dependent mother, Mag. Constantly at her mother’s beck and call, Maureen takes revenge by feeding her lumpy Complan and hurling the occasional insult. Escape comes in the form of Pato Dooley, who is about to go to Boston. When Mag interferes once too often, Maureen decides the time has come to break free.
