Irish Accent

 

Dark humor and the Irish seem to go hand-in-hand, and there’s no better illustration of this than Martin McDonagh’s The Beauty Queen of Leenane, which comes to Boston’s Emerson/Paramount Center Robert J. Orchard Stage February 8–26. Produced by Galway, Ireland’s lauded Druid Theatre Company, McDonagh’s twisted play chronicles the fraught, dysfunctional relationship between an unmarried, middle-aged woman and her manipulative mother. This is a revival of the Druid’s multiple Tony Award-winning production that electrified Broadway nearly 20 years ago, and Tony Award-winning director Garry Hynes returns to oversee the U.S. tour, making this a must-see for aficionados of both Irish theater and taut family drama.
