The Beauty Queen of Leenane is a dark performance, full of black humor and music about the hope that everything can be done differently.

Forty-year-old Maureen (Keja Klaasje Kwestro) is slaving away for her mother Mag (Jacqueline Blom) in the poor village of Leenane. Mag doesn't want Maureen to lead a life of her own, let alone find a husband. But then Maureen meets pretty-boy Pato at a party. Mother Mag uses all means at her disposal to ensure that she doesn’t lose her daughter.

The Beauty Queen of Leenane
was written in 1996 by the Anglo-Irish writer Martin Mc Donagh as part of The Leenane Trilogy and won four Tony Awards. Today, Mc Donagh is known as the successful film screenwriter and director of Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, winner of two Oscars and four Golden Globe Awards, among others.

"Bjørseth knows how to handle black humor in "The beauty queen of Leenane" ★★★★

NRC

Maren E. Bjørseth comments on the performance

"It may be a cliché, but since I became a mother myself, a new fascination for the mother/daughter relationship has arisen. Nowhere do you find a relationship and connection that is so incredibly beautiful, painful, and touching, but can also be incredibly tough."
