The Beauty Queen of Leenane
Time for something a little different with a trip to the theatre. We know of director Martin Mcdonagh's films 'Three Billboards Outside Ebbing Missouri' and 'In Bruges'. Before he got into film making however he was already an accomplished playwright. So let's now take the time to enjoy this production of Mcdonagh's 1996 play 'The Beauty Queen of Leenane' which is Directed by Francesca Folan (Red Dwarf, Jeeves and Wooster), and set in the mountains of Connemara, County Galway. It tells the darkly comic tale of Maureen Folan, a plain and lonely woman in her early forties, and Mag her manipulative ageing mother whose interference in Maureen's first and potentially last loving relationship sets in motion a train of events that is as gothically funny as it is horrific. No doubt characterised by the same black humour that pervades his films, this promises to be an entertaining night at the theatre. Tickets cost £12 and can be purchased from this link and I have booked seat E10. The show starts at 19:30 but we will meet at 19:00 in the cafe of the arts centre to give people time to have a chat and grab a drink. Look forward to seeing you all there.
