The Beauty Queen Of Leenane By Martin McDonagh Directed by Paul J. Potenza Mar. 13 – Apr. 7, 2024 Shimberg Playhouse, Straz Center Jobsite fans often cite McDonagh’s work among their favorites when looking back at our 25-year history, and we agree. With The Beauty Queen of Leenane we return to the first of his plays we staged, and the show that convinced then-TBPAC CEO Judy Lisi to make us resident theater company in 2003. Set in a small town in the mountains of Connemara, Galway, The Beauty Queen of Leenane spins the darkly comic yarn of Maureen Folan, a woman who feels like anything but a beauty queen. After a lifetime spent caring for her bullying tyrant of a mother, 40-year-old Maureen feels that she has been robbed of any chance of romance or a life of her own. When true love finally does come along for Maureen, the two women lock horns until scores are settled. With plot twists and story conundrums, The Beauty Queen of Leenane will have audiences laughing aloud one moment and covering their mouths in stunned silence the next.
