After the excellent The Price, next up on The Lyceum’s 09/10 programme is The Beauty Queen of Leenane.
Penned by Martin McDonagh, writer of the darkly comic movie In Bruges, Beauty Queen looks set to once again challenge the Edinburgh-going theatre audience with a brutal and twisted comic tale of betrayal, devotion and misunderstandings which pulls no punches.
Maureen lives a prisoner-like existence in a small village in Galway, caring for her needy and manipulative mother, Mag. Fate gives Maureen a chance of happiness and escape, but Mag has other ideas…
Tony Cownie directs a cast including Cara Kelly and Nora Connolly in a production we’re looking forward to with guilty pleasure. A full review will appear on the site during the first week of its run.
The Beauty Queen of Leenane runs from 19 Feb – 13 March. Prices, tickets and further information can be obtained from the Lyceum’s website.
