The Beauty Queen of Leenane is a 1996 black comedy by Irish playwright Martin McDonagh which is set in the mountains of Connemara, County Galway. It is the tale of Maureen Folan, a plain and lonely woman in her early 40’s, and Mag her manipulative, aging mother whose 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.

Druid is a world class theatre company based in the West of Ireland producing and presenting work with boldness, agility and passion.
