Third Rail Repertory Theatre: Beauty Queen of Leenane
Third Rail rounds out the season by completing the critically acclaimed Leenane Trilogy, which began with The Lonesome West and continued in A Skull In Connemara. Maureen Folan is living in her tiny cottage in the village of Leenane caring for her aging mother, Mag, a woman of many demands and minimal charms. She aches to leave her life of tedium, not to mention her manipulative mother, and opportunity knocks with the appearance of Pato Dooley. So begins a darkly hilarious series of events, leading to a stunning and surprising climax that only Martin McDonagh could have conceived. Finish the year with Third Rail by celebrating the breakthrough work that brought Irish storytelling kicking and screaming into the 21st Century.
Performances run May 30 through June 22. Visit Organizer Website for dates and times. For ticket information please contact the Third Rail box office at 503-235-1101.
