beauty queen A new production of Martin McDonagh’s The Beauty Queen of Leenane is running at the Gamm Theatre in Pawtucket now through June 2nd.

In a dimly lit kitchen in a shabby cottage in a backwater village in the west of Ireland, selfish, conniving Mag and her embittered 40-year-old virginal daughter, Maureen, stew in mutual loathing. When Maureen is offered a last chance at love, she sees an opportunity to escape. But Mag has other ideas, setting in motion a chain of betrayals and tragedy, both heartbreaking and hilarious.

Directed by Judith Swift. Seen here: Wendy Overly as Mag.

Through June 2nd, Gamm Theatre, 172 Exchange Street, Pawtucket
