The award winning London Classic Theatre production of The Beauty Queen of Leenane opens at the Oldham Coliseum on 27 October.

Set in the mountains of Connemara, County Galway, it tells the darkly comic tale of Maureen Folan, a plain, lonely woman in her early forties, and Mag, her manipulative, ageing mother.

When Mag interferes in Maureen’s first and possibly final chance of a loving relationship, a train of events is set in motion that leads inexorably towards the play’s terrifying finale. Martin McDonagh’s multi award-winning play is a gripping blend of dark comedy, melodrama, horror and tragedy.

Currently on tour, The Beauty Queen of Leenane runs until 31 October. Tickets can be booked by calling the box office on 0161 624 2829 or online here
