Wendy Overly as Mag in The Beauty Queen of Leenane.
The Sandra Feinstein-Gamm Theatre wraps up its 29th season with “The Beauty Queen of Leenane,” a multi-award-winning play by Irish-born playwright Martin McDonagh. The play that The New Yorker magazine called “Riveting…and cruelly amusing” centers around the dysfunctional relationship between a spinster daughter Maureen and her suffocating mother, Mag. When Maureen, at last, has a shot at romance (and escape), Mag sets a chain of events in motion that showcases McDonagh’s deft tragi-comic storytelling abilities. According to the Daily News, the result is “Brilliant, dark and very funny.” Directed by Judith Swift, “The Beauty Queen of Leenane” will run through June 2.
WHERE: 172 Exchange St., Pawtucket
WHEN: Through June 2
