15th NOVEMBER - 23rd NOVEMBER 2013 (371st PRODUCTION)

In a dingy cottage in Leenane, a remote part of Galway, spinster Maureen lives with
her self-pitying, ruthless, hateful mother, Mag.

Constantly at her beck and call, Maureen takes revenge by feeding her lumpy
Complan and hurling the occasional insult.

Escape comes in the form of Pato Dooley, who is about to go to Boston.

When Mag interferes once too often Maureen decides the time has come to break free - in a very violent way.

A tragic situation emphasised by the black humour of the script.

Produced by Simon Cox.
