Set in the mountains of Connemara, County Galway, THE BEAUTY QUEEN OF LEENANE tells the darkly comic tale of Maureen Folan, a plain and lonely woman in her early forties, and Mag, her manipulative aging mother, whose interference in Maureen’s first and possibly final chance of a loving relationship sets in motion a train of events that leads inexorably towards the play’s terrifying dénouement.

Auditions for Constellations


Chatham Community Players’ black box series, One Weekend Only, wraps up its 2nd Season holding auditions for Nick Payne’s CONSTELLATIONS, directed by Felicity Winter. One Weekend Only was born of the desire to find a dedicated place at the theater for a different kind of production. These shows have smaller casts, smaller sets, and are staged up close our audiences. The subject matter may be challenging. The humor may be on the dark side. The drama may be intense.

Auditions will be held on Monday, March 11th, and Tuesday, March 12th, at 7:00 pm at The Chatham Playhouse 23 North Passaic Ave. Chatham, NJ. Performances are June 7-9, 2024, with rehearsals to begin in late March. 

Actors will be asked to read from sides provided below at the audition asked to check in by 7:30 pm, unless previously arranged with the production team.
