This Tony Award-winning dark comedy is set in the provincial Irish town of Leenane. Forty-year-old Maureen Folan lives with her manipulative aging mother Mag, stuck in a caretaking relationship that has them both seething with resentment. When a romantic encounter finally sparks Maureen’s hopes for an escape from her dreary existence, Mag’s interference sets a chain of events in motion that is as tragically funny as it is terrifying.
