About the Show Less...

A dark comedy of horror and tragedy. Read More >

Martin McDonagh’s 1996 play won several awards in the UK and was nominated for six Tony Awards when it opened on Broadway.

The Beauty Queen Of Leenane blends dark comedy, melodrama, horror and tragedy as it tells the story of Maureen Folan, a plain, lonely woman in her early 40s, and Mag, her manipulative, ageing mother. When Mag interferes in Maureen’s first and possibly only chance of a loving relationship, it sparks a chain of events that leads towards the play’s terrifying finale.
