Here are photos from Stratford Central Secondary School‘s recent production of Mimi Lights the Candle, a Christmas play James Reaney wrote in 1943 when he was a student.
On Christmas Eve, Laura, Mimi’s long-absent mother, returns home.
Mimi: But you came!
Laura: Yes, because it was Christmas. My money was nearly gone,
but I managed to pay my fare here. And then Mimi’s candle drew me.
