“The Beauty Queen of Leenane” – Is life to be the same old, same old?….Perhaps the future holds something more fulfilling…. 8 JULY – 23 JULY, 2022.

Maureen (Angelique Malcolm) imagines a future of love and contentment.

The Beauty Queen of Leenane

Written by Martin McDonagh
and directed by Joan Moriarty

Performed at Heidelberg Theatre from
8th JULY – 23rd JULY, 2022

Set in the deceptively idyllic, west Irish countryside, this is a darkly comic tale of Maureen Folan, a lonely spinster in her early forties, and Mag, her devious ageing mother. Mag’s interference in her daughter’s first and only chance of love starts a chain of events that lead inexorably to a tragic result.

This powerful work from Martin McDonagh won the 1998 Drama League Award for Best Play and the 1998 Outer Critics Circle Award Best Broadway Play.
