THE BEAUTY QUEEN OF LEENANE is a first-class Irish play, by a very talented modern “Mick” writer. The none too fragile production is finely-directed and performed. This is one of the top area productions of the season and is a definite must see!
Irish playwright Martin McDonagh is a master at bringing to life petty power struggles between family members, often over the most mundane issues. None Too Fragile has embraced his extreme black humor repeatedly in the last several years, currently with the dark comedy THE BEAUTY QUEEN OF LEENANE. The play features fiery Equity actress Derdriu Ring in her None Too Fragile debut as the lonely, plain Maureen Folan, who is in her 40s.
