The Beauty Queen of Leenane

This event is in the past. This is an archive page for reference.

Two of Ireland’s pre-eminent actors Susan Lynch (Elizabeth: The Golden Age; Enduring Love; From Hell) and Rosaleen Linehan (Blood Wedding, Almeida; Neil Jordan’s The Butcher Boy) take on theatre’s darkest mother-daughter pairing in the first major London revival of this horrifically funny play by Oscar and BAFTA-winner Martin McDonagh (In Bruges; The Pillowman).

High in the mountains of Connemara live a lonely spinster Maureen and her devilishly manipulative mother Mag. Maureen longs for the romance that will spirit her away. But if she goes, who will stir the lumps out of Mag's complan?

Joe Hill-Gibbins directs this darkly comic take on rural Ireland.
