The Beauty Queen of Leenane by St Patrick’s Drama Group
April 23 - April 26
8 PM, April 23-26. Westport Town Hall Theatre.
Westport’s acclaimed amateur dramatic society, St Patrick’s Drama Group, is staging Martin McDonnagh’s acclaimed 1996 play ‘The Beauty Queen of Leenane’ in Westport Town Hall Theatre over four nights, starting Tuesday, April 23, and finishing this Friday, April 26.
‘The Beauty Queen of Leenane’ tells the story of Maureen Folan, a lonely spinster in her early 40s, and Mag, her manipulative, ageing mother. Their relationship has been a decades-old struggle for power and independence. 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, building with unrelenting tension towards an unforgettable and inevitable climax.
