This Tony Award-winning dark comedy is set in the provincial Irish town of Leenane. Forty-something spinster Maureen Folan lives with her manipulative aging mother Mag, stuck in a caretaking relationship that has them both seething with resentment. When a romantic encounter finally sparks Maureen’s hopes for an escape from her dreary existence, Mag’s interference sets in motion a chain of events that is tragically funny as it is terrifying. Written in 1996, BEAUTY QUEEN is one of a trilogy and was the very first play from McDonagh, who is also notable screenwriter known for In Bruges and recently acclaimed Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri.
