What a pleasure to have live theatre back, our stages are once again alive with laughter, drama and portrayals of humanity. If you are looking for a wonderful theatre experience then you should book now for The Beauty Queen of Leenane, opening at Theatre on the Square on 4 October and running until the 29th October 2022.

Björn Salsone, host of the Business Brunch show, every Tuesday at 11 on ebizradio.com, chats to Charmaine Weir-Smith, Director of the show The Beauty Queen of Leenane.We find out more about the production, the post pandemic opening up of theaters and everything in-between that gives us insight into the world of theatre.

The Beauty Queen of Leenane, a theatrical masterpiece by acclaimed Irish playwright Martin McDonagh (In Bruge, Hangmen) and winner of four Tony Awards, is a darkly comic tale about the turbulent, dysfunctional, and often savage relationship between mother and daughter, Mag and Maureen Folan. The play centres around the life of Maureen, an unmarried middle-aged woman, as she cares for her ailing mother Mag, and tries to find love.  When the two brothers enter, we are set on a path to the play’s thrilling conclusion. Interspersed with romance and humour, this psychological thriller will have audiences on the edge of their seats.

Charmaine Weir-Smith (The Train Driver) directs a stellar cast starring Jennifer Steyn (The Inconvenience Of Wings) as Mag, Julie-Anne McDowell (The Revlon Girl) as Maureen, Bryan Hiles (Sweeney Todd) as Pato and Sven Ruygrok (Spud) as Ray. The production is designed by multiple award-winning designers Greg King (set) and Denis Hutchinson (lighting).
