Birthday Candles (Regional, Northlight Theatre, 2023) | Playbill

Birthday Candles



Ernestine Ashworth spends her 17th birthday agonizing over her insignificance in the universe. Soon enough, it’s her 18th birthday. Even sooner, her 41st. Her 70th. Her 101st. Five generations, an infinity of dreams, and one cake baked over a century.

Directed by Jessica Thebus

Featuring Kate Fry, Cyd Blakewell, Samuel B. Jackson, Chiké Johnson, Timothy Edward Kane, Corrbette Pasko
