Editorial Reviews

Review

"(McDonagh) offers all the familiar delights of farce and melodrama, while at the same time offering a powerful critique of contemporary Ireland."—The Guardian
 
"A richly human illustration of that tragicomic paradox. If it wasn't so funny it would be squalid."—The Times (of London)
 
"The dramatic tension McDonagh creates is brilliantly sustained, while the sudden twists and turns of the plot elicit genuine gasps of surprise from the audience."—Daily Telegraph
 
"(McDonagh's) ear for the Irish rhythms and the absurdities of everyday speech is matchless."—Sunday Daily Mail
 
"Martin McDonagh is one of the top playwrights to have emerged in the 1990's."—Daily Mail

Book Description

The Beauty Queen of Leenane tells the darkly comic tale of Maureen Folan, a plain and lonely woman in her early forties, and Mag her manipulative ageing mother whose interference in Maureen's first and potentially last loving relationship sets in motion a train of events that is as gothically funny as it is horrific. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

I never received the play. I am very disappointed as I genuinely enjoyed my friend's copy and needed a copy for class.
