Maeve Binchy’s ‘Aches and Pains’ – (adapted for stage by Shay Linehan)

Dalkey Castle – Sunday 18th (SOLD OUT) and Thursday 22nd October (SOLD OUT)

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 in which she 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; terrific things to do when getting old; how to give up drink and many more unique and ‘Maeviously’ wonderful perspectives on life.

‘Aches and Pains’ is Maeve at her wisest, funniest, and most tongue-in-cheek.
Margaret Dunne directs Michael Heavey and Margaret Toomey in this world premiere, laugh-out-loud, sensitive adaptation for the stage by Shay Linehan of Deilg Inis Theatre Co.
