Kilrush Drama Group – The Beauty Queen of Leenane by Martin McDonagh

Kilrush Drama Group  are busy preparing for  the All Ireland Open Circuit with one of the modern classics of Irish theatre. The Beauty Queen of Leenane by world renowned playright, Martin McDonagh. It is set in the mountains of Connemara and tells the story of Maureen Folan, a plain and lonely woman in her early 40s, and Mag, her manipulative, aging mother. Mag’s interference in Maureen’s first and potentially last romantic relationship, sets in motion a chain of events that are as tragically funny as they are horrific.

Mick Byrne will direct this powerful drama and the role of Maureen Folan will be played by Joanne Logue. Playing the formidable role of Mag Folan, Maureen’s mother, is Hilary Madigan. New comers to the group are Niall McGrath from Carnew and John Joe Murphy from Kilrush who play the roles of Pato and Ray respectively.
