Being presented as the Kansas entry into the AACT Community Theatre Festival
Three elderly women meet at a lunch table on their first day in a home for senior citizens. A
candle placed there by the matron awakens different memories in each. To the frivolous, friendly
ex-actress Maribeth Garrity, candles belong with champagne and flowers. To Miss Tolliver, a
children's nursemaid, they speak of childhood poverty when candles gave the only light. To the
aristocratic Mrs. Bramson, they mean the formal meals which only emphasized the emptiness of
her life. The lunchtime conversation reveals some surprising aspects of the lives and
personalities of the three women, and culminates in a friendship and an affirmative decision.
Sensitively drawn characters, gentle humor, and a generous dash of truth.
