A hilarious and heatwarming tale of confusion, communion and confessional boxes.
It's 1985 and two girls are getting ready for the social occasion of the year - their First Holy Communion. Mary and Majella have been sworn enemies since baby infants, and things have gone from bad to worse since Mary's daddy moved in with Majella's mammy. Scrambling for insults to fling at each other, Majella thinks she's found a weak spot when she discovers Mary's Communion dress is actually a second hand one donated to the "Vincent and Paul". Will Majella use this devastating info to take down her nemesis, or reliase that she and Mary might not be so different after all?
In typical Eoin Colfer fashion, the characters are recognisably real and achingly funny. The cast of two play two mothers, a benevolent priest, a patient teacher, a misguided father and two cheeky but lovable nine year olds.
