Minding Frankie: Stage Play

Maeve Binchy’s Minding Frankie has been adapted for the stage by Shay Linehan. After a short tour in Ireland it played at the Gaiety Theatre in Dublin during June 2017.

Minding Frankie is a family love story, full of Maeve Binchy’s trademark wisdom, warmth, and humour.

It is the first Maeve Binchy novel to be adapted for the stage. Maeve’s husband, Gordon Snell, who has played a part in bringing the project to life is “delighted to see Maeve’s work brought to life on stage, in this brilliant production”
