This magnificent play was premiered by the Druid Theatre Company in Galway. “The Beauty Queen” also enjoyed successful runs at London’s West End, Broadway and Off-Broadway. It was nominated for the Laurence Olivier Award as Best Play for the London production, and the 1998 Broadway production was nominated for six Tony Awards, winning four.
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 40’s, and Mag, her manipulative and 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.
‘Please avail yourself, and brace yourself for the virtuosic turbulence of one of modern theatre’s most giddily diabolical minds.’ – The Washington Post
