The Ray Leonard Players (Confined) Present
“The Beauty Queen of Leenane”
By Martin McDonagh
Set in the mountains of Connemara, the play centres around Maureen Folan, a
plain and lonely woman in her early 40s, and Mag, her manipulative, aging mother.
The two share a turbulent and unhealthy existence. Mag’s interference in Mau-
reen’s first, and potentially last, romantic relationship sets in motion a chain of
events that are as tragically funny as they are horrific.
History of the Group

respected in drama circles across the country. Ray was a massive inspiration to
founding members Damien Conway and Anne Ronayne, as well as countless
other performers in the West. The group hopes to continue Ray Leonard’s great
reputation in the drama world
