High in the mountains of Galway live a lonely spinster Maureen and her devilishly manipulative mother Mag. Maureen longs for the romance that will spirit her away. But if she goes, who will stir the lumps out of Mag's Complan?

Martin McDonagh's work includes the Olivier Award-winning The Pillowman, Oscar-winning Six Shooter and the BAFTA and Golden Globe-winning hit In Bruges. Directed by Joe Hill-Gibbins (The Glass Menagerie), Rosaleen Linehan (Neil Jordan's The Butcher Boy, Dancing at Lughnasa on Broadway) reprises her highly acclaimed performance as Mag and is joined by the brilliant Derbhle Crotty (Notes on a Scandal) as the long-suffering Maureen.
