Set in the mountains of Connemara, County Galway, THE BEAUTY QUEEN OF LEENANE tells the twisted, darkly comic tale of Maureen Folan, a lonely woman in her early forties, trapped in a life of groveling servitude by her aging, cantankerous mother. When Maureen finds an opportunity to escape into the arms of Pato Dooley, a local construction worker with a big heart and open arms, she rediscovers love and begins to dream of the possibility of a new life for herself. Her mother has other ideas, however, and her interference sets in motion a chain of deceptions and betrayals, heart-breaking tragedy, and savage ironyall of which lead inevitably to the play's bizarre, terrifying conclusion.
The first act will leave you giddy with laughter; the second will wipe the smile right off your face.
Winner of the DRAMA DESK AWARD, DRAMA CRITICS AWARD, AND THE LUCILLE LORTEL AWARD, 'BEAUTY QUEEN' also received a 1998 TONY nomination for best Broadway play of the season.
