THE BEAUTY QUEEN OF LEENANE by Martin McDonagh, directed by Judith Swift
MAY 2 - JUNE 2, 2013
In a dimly lit kitchen in a shabby cottage in a backwater village in the west of Ireland, selfish, conniving Mag and her embittered 40-year-old virginal daughter, Maureen, stew in mutual loathing. When Maureen is offered a last chance at love, she sees an opportunity to escape. But Mag has other ideas, setting in motion a chain of betrayals and tragedy, both heartbreaking and hilarious. With savage irony, the first in McDonagh's multi-award-winning "Leenane Trilogy" of tragicomedies - The Beauty Queen of Leenane, A Skull in Connemara, The Lonesome West (Gamm Season 21) - surprises audiences through to its horrifying conclusion.
