The Beauty Queen of Leenane
by Martin McDonagh
The Second Show of our 2016-17 Season
September 23 - October 9, 2016
Directed by Jeremy Moranski
Winner of four Tony Awards and the Outer Critics Circle award for outstanding play, this darkly comic tale introduces Maureen Folan, a plain and lonely spinster in her early forties, and Mag, her devilishly manipulative, aging mother. Mag’s interference in Maureen's first and potentially last loving relationship sets in motion a train of events that is as gothically funny as it is horrific.
“...clearly the product of a major writer...destined to be one of the theatrical luminaries of the twenty-first century." -New Republic
