In a small house in the mountains of Ireland, a lonely spinster locks horns with her house-bound, manipulative mother in a rage-filled battle of the wills. Written by Martin McDonagh (The Pillowman, The Cripple of Inishmaan), one of Ireland's most important contemporary playwrights, The Beauty Queen of Leenane is a subversive thriller that takes audiences through the twists and turns of the ultimate dysfunctional relationship, revealing what can happen when family ties go too far…way too far.
Twenty years ago, the Druid Theatre Company's production of The Beauty Queen of Leenane rocked America and Broadway; the show was nominated for six Tony Awards, winning four. Druid returns with Tony-winning director Garry Hynes' remount of this spectacular production. Marie Mullen, who won the Tony for her performance as the daughter, returns this time in the role of the mother, while Aisling O'Sullivan takes up the daughter's role.
1930s New England, a girls' boarding school. Mary, a disgruntled and notoriously deceitful student, thinks she's being treated unfairly. Stopping at nothing to get even, she starts a rumor that the headmistresses, Karen and Martha, are having an affair. The ensuing scandal throws the women's careers into chaos and pushes relationships to the brink, with surprising and devastating consequences for everyone. A controversial success when it opened on Broadway in 1934, Hellman's groundbreaking play about the culture of fear and the power of public shaming is startlingly relevant today.
A Play Adapted by Terry Johnson Based on the Novel by Charles Webb and the Motion Picture Screenplay by Calder Willingham and Buck Henry.
