A brilliantly written, viciously dark and often hilariously funny play by the writer behind In Bruges and Three Billboards Outside Ebbing Missouri, The Beauty Queen of Leenane won four Tony Awards for its first Broadway outing and is an absolute gift of a show for performers looking to take on meaty, superbly developed characters.
Set in rural Galway in the 1990s, the play revolves around Maureen, a woman of around 40, who is controlled and manipulated by her appalling mother, Mag. Dreaming of an escape, Maureen’s chance comes when she spends a night with easy-going Pato Dooley after a party. But Mag won’t give up her daughter as easily as that.
The show runs Wed 15th - Sat 18th June 2022 and there is more information on the Auditions page.
