The Beauty Queen of Leenane
By Martin McDonagh
Easter Week 4
Maureen lives with her aged mother, Mag, in rural Galway, Ireland. The tensions in their damp kitchen simmer and sizzle like the porridge which rattles away on the stove. There are strange folk songs on the radio and a suspicious smell in the sink that might be related to Mag's urine infection.
A possible escape for Maureen means abandonment for Mag which she won't be accepting lying down. After twenty years in the old house, things are finally coming to a head.
Romantic, uproarious, and terrifying, The Beauty Queen of Leenane is a comedy of mothers, daughters, and lovers which has twisted and curdled.
