In Aches and Pains , Maeve offers hilarious advice on:  baring your body; motivating the patient in the next bed; how to give up drink and many more unique and ‘Maeviously’ wonderful perspectives on life.

​The late Shay Linehan captured the essence of Maeve’s book in this sensitive, laugh-out-loud adaptation.  The play is set in a recuperation ward where two post-operative ‘hippies’, Ann and Stan, try to figure out the best way to tackle life, armed only with a plastic hip and a positive attitude.

“ …this is Maeve at her wisest, funniest, most tongue-in-cheek”
