It was announced today that due to phenomenal public demand, Druid will return to the Gaiety Theatre next March with the brilliantly subversive The Beauty Queen of Leenane by Martin McDonagh.

The production directed by multi-award winning Garry Hynes, boasts a stellar cast of Marie Mullen, Aisling O’Sullivan, Marty Rea and Aaron Monaghan.

The Beauty Queen of Leenane 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.

Druid’s production of The Beauty Queen of Leenane debuted in Galway in 1996 in a co-production with the Royal Court Theatre. It then went on to play in London and transferred to the West End and Broadway to critical acclaim.

The production won four Tony Awards in 1998 including Best Direction for Garry Hynes, the first woman to ever win a Tony Award® for Direction.

Marie Mullen plays the role of Mag, having won a Tony Award for her portrayal of Maureen in the original Beauty Queen.
