Winner of four Tony Awards, The Beauty Queen of Leenane serves up a rich Irish stew of dark comedy and drama centering on a seriously dysfunctional mother and daughter. The plain, put-upon Maureen spends her present and foreseeable future caring for her infirm and domineering mother, Mag -- until a final chance at love appears. But Mag isn't about to let Maureen go so easily, setting off a shocking chain of events. This acclaimed work by Martin McDonagh, the Oscar-winning writer of In Bruges and the play The Lieutenant of Inishmore, comes to the stage courtesy of the Falcon Theatre in Newport.
