The Beauty Queen of Leenane
Four Rivers presents The Beauty Queen of Leenane, a blackly comic modern Irish classic from renowned playwright and Golden Globe-winning filmmaker Martin McDonagh (In Bruges, Three Billboards Outside Ebbing Missouri). It portrays the manipulative Mag and her virginal daughter Maureen as they play out a battle of mutual loathing against the beautiful but unforgiving backdrop of the Connemara hills.
Ben Barnes directs a cast led by Irish stage legend Marion O’Dwyer (as Mag), with Sarah Madigan, Mark Fitzgerald and Tiernan Messitt-Greene.
Four Rivers is supported by the Arts Council, Waterford City & County Council, Kilkenny County Council, Wexford County Council and Creative Ireland.
