Synopsis


Set in Leenane in County Galway, Martin McDonagh's first play tells the darkly comic tale of Maureen Folan, a plain lonely woman in her early forties, and Mag, her manipulative ageing mother.


Mag's interference in Maureen's first and possibly final chance of a loving relationship sets in motion a train of events that leads inexorably towards the play's terrifying denouement.
