Let Next Stage Theatre Company transport you to Leenane, a small rural community on the West coast of Ireland. You will form the listening and seeing walls of Mag and her daughter Maureen’s kitchen in their isolated homestead.

This is Martin McDonagh’s first play, which premiered in 1996, and achieved international success and acclaim.
Abandoned by her older sisters to look after their irascible mother, who is full of complaints about lumpy Complan and cold porridge, Maureen, the eponymous “Beauty Queen of Leenane”, hopes for escape in the form of Pato Dooley. A local man, who has returned from working in England on the building sites, for a family party.
But the cobwebs of deceit threaten the couple’s plans, and dark simmering tensions between mother and daughter force their way to the surface with heart-breaking and disturbing consequences.
