Maeve Binchy

When the late, great Maeve Binchy went into hospital for a hip replacement some years ago, what did she do? …Play the martyr? Complain and wait to get better? Not a bit of it; that was never Maeve.

What she did do was write a ‘Cheer Up’ book, a sort of survival manual, containing, ‘advice about how to muddle through in times of aches and pains’.

In the book, Maeve offers hilarious advice on: baring your body; motivating the patient in the next bed; hiding being lame; becoming a friend to your feet; making a will; how to be less nervy; terrific things to do when getting old; how to give up drink and many more unique and ‘Maeviously’ wonderful perspectives on life.

In the beautiful surroundings of Dalkey Castle & Heritage Centre, beloved of Maeve, we are bringing this laugh-out-loud experience to the stage in Shay Linehan’s sensitive adaptation. The show lasts 55 mins and is ideal to be partnered with dinner locally. Start time can vary to suit the schedule of the visiting group at either 19.30 or 21.00.
