Lovely Leitrim by John McDwyer performed by Beezneez Theatre Company


Beezneez celebrate twenty years of touring with a major revival of John McDwyer’s first stage play, Lovely Leitrim. It tells the story of the Gallagher family who farm on a Leitrim hillside. Armed with the certainty of motherhood, Mary Gallagher is convinced she knows what is best for her family in the event of her death. Her insistence on being granted her dying wish ultimately fragments her family and results in a cataclysmic evening in a London pub where her eldest son finally makes peace with himself and with the world. The unbridled wit of the dialogue in Lovely Leitrim sugars the sadness of a passing way of life.
