Past Productions - November 2016: The Beauty Queen of Leenane by Martin McDonagh - directed by Mark Waghorn

Photography by Cat Humphries


This wickedly amusing and thrillingly dramatic play tells the story of Maureen, a plain and lonely middle-aged spinster who lives with her elderly mother Mag. Maureen’s sisters have flown the nest, escaping the drab family home, but Maureen remains at home, trapped in an acutely dysfunctional relationship with her mother.

When the arrival of an invitation sparks hopes of a last chance romance and the longed-for prospect of escape, things start to look up for Maureen – but not if her interfering manipulative mother has anything to do with it...

The twists and turns, the dark undertones and laugh-out-loud moments, of this perfectly plotted drama have deservedly placed this play among the classics of modern theatre.
