WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

"Gloriously funny... wickedly amusing... an unalloyed delight" - The Telegraph Middle-aged, unmarried and embittered, Maureen is locked in a stalemate with her elderly mother Mag, who is as selfish as she is manipulative. Their simmering relationship boils over when Maureen takes a lover and finds hope for escape. When you see this first hit by award-winning Irish writer Martin McDonagh, oft compared to Quentin Tarantino and known for his plays The Pillowman and The Lieutenant of Inishmore, as well as films In Bruges and Seven Psychopaths, you can expect to be "gasping with surprise (and sometimes horror) in between bursts of laughter" (The Herald). Winner of the 1998 Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Play, Drama League Award for Best Play and Outer Critics Circle Award for Outstanding Broadway Play. Directed by Mark Jackson | Featuring Joy Carlin, Rod Gnapp, Joseph Salazar and Beth Wilmurt
