About this event

Balally Players present its 40th Anniversary production; 'The Beauty Queen of Leenane’ by Martin McDonagh.

Prior to his success with ‘In Bruges’ and the ‘Banshees of Inisherin’, this was McDonagh’s debut play, that launched his career and electrified audiences. It introduced the world to McDonagh’s darkly comic style – at times hilarious, at times vicious.

First produced by the Druid Theatre Company in 1996, ‘The Beauty Queen of Leenane’ tells the story of spinster Maureen Folan trapped in a dysfunctional relationship with her scheming and manipulative mother Mags in a rundown cottage in the wilds of Connemara. Will Maureen’s last chance at love have a happy ending? Not if Mags can help it.
