Holycross/Ballycahill Drama Group bring Martin McDonagh’s classic play ‘The Beauty Queen of Leenane’ to the stage for their spring production.
Directed by Claire Ryan, and featuring Diane Lacey, Jacqui Lacey, John Glasheen and Mark Fitzell, the play, set in Leenane, in the mountains of Connemara, Co Galway, tells the story of Maureen Folan, a plain and lonely woman in her early forties, and Mag, her manipulative, ageing mother. Mags’ interference in Maureen’s first romantic encounter, sets in motion a chain of events that are as tragically funny as they are horrific.
