Nicky Harley cast in THE BEAUTY QUEEN OF LEENANE at Lyric Theatre, Belfast

April 14, 2023
Nicky Harley has been cast as Maureen in Martin McDonagh's seminal play THE BEAUTY QUEEN OF LEENANE at the Lyric Theatre, Belfast.

The Beauty Queen of Leenane tells the darkly comic tale of Maureen Folan, a woman in her early forties who lives alone, and Mag her manipulative ageing mother. Mag's interference in Maureen's first and potentially last loving relationship sets in motion a train of events that is as gothically funny as it is horrific.

“McDonagh’s writing is pitiless but compassionate: he casts a cold, hard, but understanding eye on relationships made of mistrust, hesitation, resentment and malevolence" - Sunday Times

Directed by Emma Jordan. A Lyric Theatre & Prime Cut Production - playing from 27th May - 1st July.

Casting by Clare Gault.
