Just returned from seeing this play performed in Durango, Co. Wonderfully done. McDonagh has again written a play that has many twists and turns and requires thinking and analysis. The dialogue was a challenge to understand but with concentration you can be drawn into the manipulation the author puts you through. Very musty graveyard scenes in this production. Anxious to give it a read - great evening. The Beauty Queen of Leenane was better I thought but that might just have been the production.
