The Beauty Queen of Leenane

By Martin McDonagh

Martin McDonagh's powerful and moving play is set in late 20th century Connemara where Maureen, a spinster, is taking care of Mag, her selfish and manipulative mother. Maureen's sisters have escaped from the village of Leenane and mother and daughter are locked in a comically dysfunctional relationship. As the play progresses the secrets emerge.

Mag's efforts to thwart her daughter's last chance of romance with Pato Dooley moves the play from comedy into something darker, while Pato's brother Ray proves to be the unwitting instrument of the final tragedy.
