The Beauty Queen of Leenane


Categories: Theater

Dates: September 16, 2022 - October 2, 2022

Run Time: 120 mins

Venue: Allens Lane Art Center Theater


Set in the isolated mountains of Connemara in County Galway, Ireland, Martin McDonagh’s award-winning play tells the darkly comic tale of Maureen Folan, a lonely woman in her early forties, and Mag, her manipulative aging mother. When Mag interferes in Maureen’s possibly final chance of a romantic relationship, the war between mother and daughter escalates in ways both hilarious and terrifying.

Allens Lane Art Center Theater

For nearly 70 years since its establishment in 1953, Allens Lane Art Center has been a vital cornerstone in the Mount Airy, Germantown, and Greater Philadelphia communities with the mission of Growing Together Through the Arts. Allens Lane Art Center Theater presents four mainstage plays each season, continuing a long-standing community theater program that has seen thousands of artists and audience members pass through its doors. We are committed to producing the best of contemporary theater, exciting new plays, and boldly reimagined classics - especially plays that tell the stories of people of color and the LGBTQIA+ community to reflect the rich diversity of the neighborhoods surrounding Allens Lane Art Center. In addition to our Mainstage season, we offer theater classes for youth and adults, Children's Theater productions, and a Reader's Theater to workshop new plays. Allens Lane Art Center Theater aims to bring people of all ages together through the communal power of the arts and is committed to diverse representation in our productions both with the actors onstage and the artists working behind the scenes.
