The Beauty Queen of Leenane

Written by the Academy Award-nominated writer of Three Billboards Outside Ebbing Montana, Martin McDonagh, The Beauty Queen of Leenane is a groundbreaking, TONY Award-winning, wildly funny, and deeply shocking modern classic set in the mountains of Connemara, Ireland. It tells the story of Maureen Foley, a plain and lonely woman in her early forties living with Mag, her manipulative aging mother. The two are trapped in a toxic caretaking relationship, and when Mag interferes in Maureen’s first and potentially last romantic relationship, a chain of events are set in motion that are as tragically funny as they are horrific. Winner of the Drama Desk, Drama League, Lucille Lortel, and Outer Critics Circle Awards for best play ‘McDonagh re-creates the traditional Irish family drama only to set it ablaze with a postmodern blowtorch.’ -LA Times
