For all you girls of a “certain age” who find yourselves in examination of your life, wondering about the “what if’s”— I had to let you know about an upcoming production of The Beauty Queen of Leenane at the North Carolina Stage Company in Asheville.
Not to spoil the plot but the backstory is one in which the characters (Maureen and her elderly mother) spend their days pretty much seeing which one of them can “get it over” on the other and the whole thing degenerates into rather perverse behavior on both parts.
The unexpected return of Maureen’s old flame offers her a glimpse into something she had long since lost sight or hope of ever happening: Escape.
I will be there and all of us here at the inn hope you will join us. What could be better? Besides, it’s fall and Asheville is enchanting at that time of the year. Hope to see you!
