The Beauty Queen of Leenane by Martin McDonagh is a play reading directed by Chase Coney.
A mother and daughter play a vicious verbal game in this darkly comedy play by Martin McDonagh, author of this year’s Academy Award-nominated Banshees of Inisherin. The Tony Award-winning The Beauty Queen of Leenane follows Maureen and her elderly, iron-willed mother as they spend their desolate days sparring for control. When a suitor threatens to lure Maureen away, the desperation drives both women to danger – and a mother-daughter confrontation explodes. Don’t miss the show the New York Times’ Ben Brantley calls “satanically funny”.
