Martin McDonagh, the playwright of ‘The Beauty Queen of Leenane’ wished the cast a warm good luck for the upcoming production at Sewell Barn.
Hi Chris, (Chris is the actor playing the role of Paddy, and somewhat of an Irish guru himself)
The monologue/letter definitely shouldn't be read - it should exist in some strange place between composing it and saying it to Maureen...
The spotlight thing - the director should ignore that completely, i didn't even remember it being there.
To see the production of one of McDonagh’s first plays bought to life, book your tickets for ‘The Beauty Queen of Lennane’ at Sewell Barn Theatre 31 March-2 April & 6-9 April at 7:30 pm Matinee 9 April at 2:30 pm.
