Interview: The Leenane Trilogy

1394677449.jpg

The Leenane Trilogy is set in rural Ireland so blighted by rancor, ignorance and spite, that even the local priest admits ‘God Himself seems to have no jurisdiction here’. A series of flamboyantly gruesome dark comedies including The Beauty Queen, A Skull in Connemara and The Lonesome West, The Leenane Troligy sees three directors lead three separate casts including some of Australia’s biggest names in stage and television in a very unique setting, bringing to the fortyfivedownstairs stage tales of smashed skulls, matricide and other carefully calibrated outrages from 28 May – 15 June. Art Smitten had a chat to actors Pete and Laura about the production.
