The team behind the hugely successful stage adaptation of Minding Frankie, now brings to the stage an adaptation of Maeve Binchy’s first ever-published novel, Light A Penny Candle.
Maeve Binchy is one of those rare writers, like Dickens, Wilde or Shaw, whose work springs from their larger-than-life personalities. Their unique voices are captured in their work. This novel was ahead of its time, Maeve highlighted some of the major social issues we are still dealing with today, all through the prism of her trademark wisdom, warmth, and humour.
Starring Dancing with the Stars contestant, Clelia Murphy, and India Mullen, and Kate Gilmore, Light A Penny Candle is a tale of an enduring, life-long, friendship, which asks some burning questions – a back-street abortion? A murder cover-up? Aisling and Elizabeth have to survive DeValera’s Ireland, their raging hormones, and the struggle for independence in a world at war. Through it all, they discover that there is no right and wrong in this world, there is only what is right for those you love. This is Maeve Binchy as you know her, and at her best.
