McDonagh's first play. 1996 Writers' Guild Award Winner - Best Fringe Theatre Play. Set in a small cottage in the mountains of Connemara, The Beauty Queen of Leeane tells the darkly comic tale of Maureen Folan, a plain and lonely woman in her forties and Mag, her manipulative, ageing mother. When Mag interferes in Maureen's first and possibly final chance of a loving relationship, she sets a chain of events in motion that lead inexorably towards the play's terrifying denouement. Contains scenes of an adult nature.
Less than dedicated to his job as undertaker's clerk, bored with his North Country family background, Billy Fisher takes refuge in his own invented world. For Billy, an energetic imagination makes life tolerable but well-nigh intolerable for all around him. He lies his way into and out of every situation, producing any explanation and making any promise that will extricate him from his present predicament, and thereby creating ever more tortuous entanglements for the immediate future.

Divorced from his wife, Oscar consoles himself by living in the cheerful chaos his carefree nature thrives on. Into the midst of a smoke laden, beer sodden weekly poker session, comes Felix, newly separated from his wife and, so he says, suicidal. At Oscar's invitation Felix moves in and is soon finding comfort in performing all the domestic tasks, with the same thoroughness which lost him his wife in the first place. Anarchy ensues in this comedy classic of non-stop laughs as the two men try to come to terms with each other.
In 1934, a group of Ashington miners hired a professor to teach an art appreciation evening class. Rapidly abandoning theory in favour of practice, the pitmen began to paint. Within a few years the most avant-garde artists became their friends and their work was acquired by prestigious collections; but every day they worked, as before, down the mine. Examining the lives of a group of ordinary men that do extraordinary things, The Pitmen Painters is a humorous, deeply moving and timely look at art, class and politics.
Jack and Liz are in Blackpool for one last time. John Godber's classic play tells the touching and humorous story of a marriage through a lifetime of annual September holidays together. Loosely based on Godber's own Yorkshire grandparents, September in the Rain is a nostalgic wander down the rain-sodden streets and beaches of Blackpool in its heyday as Jack and Liz guide us gently back through their various September holidays spent in the famous British resort : the cramped boarding houses, sitting on the beach with trousers rolled up and socks pulled up even further, and of course climbing the famous Blackpool tower.
