Tim Taylor & Mike Shevlin

In a small house on a big hill in County Galway, Ireland, the Folan women live out an uneasy truce. Forty year-old Maureen and her elderly but iron-willed Mother, Mag, spend their days in endless rounds of petty insults and physical threats as each maneuvers for control of their isolated existence. But when an old family friend reappears and offers Maureen a chance at love and a new life, this once-benign terrain grows treacherous and the two women, bound by blood but driven by desperation, will do anything to survive. Jaimelyn Gray and John Wehrman from the Bluebird Arts Theatre's drop by to discuss their performance of The Beauty Queen of Leenane, Martin McDonagh's Tony Award-winning play to be performed at the Athenaeum Theatre in Chicago. Plus, music from Socks In the Frying Pan, Solas, Dylan Walshe, Rory Makem, Donal Clancy, Carlos Nunez, Gaelic Storm, Bryan Ferry and Van Morrison. Join Mike and Tim each Wednesday night from 8pm to 9pm on WSBC 1240 AM or on our podcast at www.windycityirishradio.com.
