Maeve Binchys novel Light A Penny Candle is brought to life on stage.

A back-street abortion? A murder cover-up? These are the burning questions of Light A Penny Candle, Maeve Binchys debut novel. Although written in 1982 its issues are straight out of todays newspapers: domestic abuse, abortion, alcoholism, and murder. All that and an enduring life-long friendship.

Aisling and Elizabeth have to survive DeValeras 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 Maeve Binchy as you dont.
