Review

"(McDonagh) offers all the familiar delights of farce and melodrama, while at the same time offering a powerful critique of contemporary Ireland."--"The Guardian" "A richly human illustration of that tragicomic paradox. If it wasn't so funny it would be squalid."--"The Times (of London)" "The dramatic tension McDonagh creates is brilliantly sustained, while the sudden twists and turns of the plot elicit genuine gasps of surprise from the audience."--"Daily Telegraph" "(McDonagh's) ear for the Irish rhythms and the absurdities of everyday speech is matchless."--"Sunday Daily Mail" "Martin McDonagh is one of the top playwrights to have emerged in the 1990's."--"Daily Mail"

From the Back Cover

Set in the mountains of Connemara, County Galway, The Beauty Queen of Leenane tells the darkly comic tale of Maureen Folan, a plain and lonely woman in her early forties, and Mag, her manipulative ageing mother, whose interference in Maureen's first and possibly final chance of a loving relationship sets in motion a train of events that leads inexorably toward the play's terrifying denouement.
