Don’t miss Yael Stone and Noni Hazlehurst in this wicked black comedy by Academy Award-winning writer Martin McDonagh.
In a small town in the Irish hills of Connemara, Maureen Folan lives a lonely existence with Mag, her aged mother. Their relationship is more arm wrestle than warm embrace. Right now, when Maureen stands the chance of having her first romantic relationship, Mag’s cantankerous presence is simply unbearable.
This play was the first big hit for McDonagh who went on to pen the Broadway and West End hits The Pillowman and The Lieutenant of Inishmore, as well as acclaimed films such as In Bruges and Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri. On both stage and screen he combines a devilishly satisfying sense of humour with a cruel underbelly.
Associate Director Paige Rattray (Black is the New White) leads an incredible cast including Yael Stone (Orange is the New Black), Noni Hazlehurst (Ladies in Black, Channel 7’s A Place to Call Home), Hamish Michael (How to Rule the World) and Shiv Palekar (Disgraced). The Beauty Queen of Leenane will be a tragically funny night in the theatre.
