THE BEAUTY QUEEN OF LEENANE
By Martin McDonagh
Directed by Ann Marie Pereth
Producing Director Joseph D. Kucan
“The show is a heady mix of laughter, venom and searing pain,” said Jacob Coakley, executive director of the Valley Theatre Awards. “I’m happy it’s Recommended.”
Set in the mountains of Connemara, County Galway, THE BEAUTY QUEEN OF LEENANE tells the darkly comic tale of Maureen Folan, a plain and lonely woman in her early forties, and Mag, her manipulative aging mother, whose interference in Maureen's first and possibly final chance of a loving relationship sets in motion a train of events that leads inexorably towards the play's terrifying dénouement.
