Mother knows best. Twenty years ago, Pato Dooley thought of Maureen Folan as the beauty queen of Leenane. He never quite stopped thinking so. In reality, Maureen is a bitter spinster, stuck caring for a spiteful mother in a house they have made into a prison for each other. When Pato returns to Leenane, Maureen sees a twinkle of hope for a life with more love in it. But one thing remains in her way, pulls her down, and sits in a rocking chair plaguing her heart out. In his first published work, master tragedian Martin McDonagh proves that when cruelty is met with cruelty, all promises of civility are forfeit. “Before you know it, your appetite has come alive again, and you begin to feel nourished in ways you had forgotten were possible.”  The New York Times
