Following its acclaimed production of Clybourne Park, Rapture returns with a Tony award-winning dark Irish comedy The Beauty Queen of Leenane, by Martin McDonagh

In a remote cottage in the mountains of Connemara, 40 year old Maureen Folan lives with her manipulative and possessive mother, Mag. Maureen dreams of escape.

When a chance for happiness arrives in the form of unexpected suitor Pato Dooley, she dares to hope… But Mag has other ideas and sets in motion a chain of events that build to a terrifying climax…

Blisteringly funny, hauntingly beautiful, this landmark Irish classic play, from the writer of the Golden Globe and Oscar winning Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri and In Bruges is guaranteed to have you on the edge of your seat.
