Set in the mountains of Connemara, the play centres around Maureen Folan, a plain and lonely woman in her early 40s, and Mag, her manipulative, aging mother. The two share a turbulent and unhealthy existence. Mag’s interference in Maureen’s first and potentially last romantic relationship sets in motion a chain of events that are as tragically funny as they are horrific. The Beauty Queen of Leenane is a 1996 dramatic play by Martin McDonagh which was premiered by the Druid Theatre Company in Galway, Ireland. It also enjoyed successful runs at London’s West End, Broadway and Off-Broadway.
