WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Maureen, a lonely spinster in her forties, lives with her diabolically manipulative mother Mag in an isolated cottage in the west of Ireland. Mag whines and bullies to get her way while Maureen resentfully fulfills her mother's every command. When Maureen is offered a last chance at love, she sees a chance to escape. But Mag has other ideas, setting in motion a chain of deceptions, secrets, and betrayals that are both heartbreaking and hilarious. With savage irony, this Tony and Drama Desk Award-winning tragicomedy by Ireland's greatest living playwright surprises audiences through to its horrifying conclusion.
