Denver Center Theatre Company begins perfecting its Irish accent Sept. 30, when previews for the Mile High City premiere of Beauty Queen of Leenane -- set high atop a hill -- begins at The Stage Theatre.
Anthony Powell directs the Dublin, London and Broadway hit by Martin McDonagh, whose raw play about a spinster and her selfish mother was reputedly written in just over a week's time.
Kathleen M. Brady plays Mag, Robin Moseley is Maureen, Bill Christ is Pato Dooley and Ryan Artzberger is Ray Dooley.
Designers are Bill Curley (whose set is a rough Irish cottage placed precariously on steep hilltop), Andrew V. Yelusich (costumes) and Don Darnutzer (lighting).
Official opening for Beauty Queen at the Tony Award-winning regional theatre is Oct. 7. Performances continue to Oct. 30. Other plays by McDonagh include The Cripple of Inishmaan and The Lonesome West. Call (303) 893-4100 or (800) 641-1222 for information.
