A black comedy set in a small country village in Connemara, county Galway, Ireland, The Beauty Queen of Leenane depicts the decades-old struggle for power and independence between a 40-year-old spinster and her wry, devious, 70-year-old mother, for whom she acts as caregiver.

Funny and moving and wonderfully weird, The Realistic Joneses is a tantalizing conversation about the bewildering business of being alive.
