Forty-year-old Maureen spends her present and foreseeable future caring for her elderly but iron-willed mother, Mag -- until an old family friend reappears and offers Maureen a chance at love and a new life. But Mag isn't about to let Maureen go so easily, setting off a shocking chain of events. The Beauty Queen of Leenane serves up a rich Irish stew of dark comedy and drama centering on a seriously dysfunctional mother and daughter. This acclaimed tragicomedy by Martin McDonagh, the Oscar-winning writer of In Bruges, comes to the stage at Chicago's Athenaeum Theatre Studio Two. Deemed "wildly funny, deeply affecting and grotesquely macabre," by the London Daily Telegraph, this production brims with the brash humor, rich language and inventive storytelling for which McDonagh has been widely praised.
