Auditions (Calgary): The Beauty Queen of Leenane – Liffey Players

The Liffey Players is scheduling auditions for their upcoming spring production, The Beauty Queen of Leenane, by Martin McDonagh

“Set in the mountains of Connemara, County Galway, THE BEAUTY QUEEN OF LEENANE tells the darkly comic tale of Maureen Folan, a plain and lonely woman in her early forties, and Mag, her manipulative aging mother, whose interference in Maureen’s first and possibly final chance of a loving relationship sets in motion a train of events that leads inexorably towards the play’s terrifying denouement.”

Need the following actors:

Maureen Folan- 40’s (part on offer)

Mag Folan- her mother aged 70, stout but frail

Pato Dooley- age 40’s

Ray Dooley- his brother 20’s

This production will run at the Irish Cultural Society from May 9 to 18, 2013. The Liffey Players will also be performing this play at the Acting Irish International Theatre Festival on May 25, 2013, in Chicago, Il.
