NOEL LYNCH is struggling with an alcohol addiction. He gets a call from Stella, a girlfriend with whom he shared a drunken weekend.
Stella is having Noel’s child; she is also dying from cancer. Noel must raise their daughter, Frankie.
However, social worker, Moira Tierney has other ideas and is prepared to do battle for custody of the child.
To prevail, Noel must prove that he can fill a woman’s shoes, break all the stereotypes, and become the best mother that he can be.
Along the way, he discovers that it takes a village, or at least a streete, to rear a child.

Full of Maeve Binchy’s trademark wisdom, warmth, and humour, the hugely popular novel has now been adapted for the stage.
