The Beauty Queen of Leenane by Martin McDonagh is a play reading directed by Chase Coney.
A mother and daughter play a vicious verbal game in this darkly comedy play by Martin McDonagh, author of this year’s Academy Award-nominated Banshees of Inisherin. The Tony Award-winning The Beauty Queen of Leenane follows Maureen and her elderly, iron-willed mother as they spend their desolate days sparring for control. When a suitor threatens to lure Maureen away, the desperation drives both women to danger – and a mother-daughter confrontation explodes. Don’t miss the show the New York Times’ Ben Brantley calls “satanically funny”.

Theater By the Book
2023 Welcomes the 11th season of Theater by the Book! Theater by the Book is a series of informal play readings presented by Sierra Stages and the Miners Foundry Cultural Center. Theater By the Book is presented several times a year and features a wide range of works. The director and actors come together and rehearse for a short time; there is no scenery, no costumes, and minimal staging. Check out Theater By the Book and expand your theatrical horizons!
