Brief Description of The Bishop's Candlesticks Book:-

The Bishop’s Candlesticks is a play based on Victor Hugo’s Les Miserables. In this dramatic piece, Norman McKinnel focuses much on the change that the convict, Jean Val Jean, undergoes. The Bishop was a very noble person. He was always ready to help anyone in distress. The doors of his house were always open. Norman McKinnel in his play presents a very kind-hearted bishop and his self-sacrificial nature. Bishop is not rich but shows generosity to all. He has donated everything except Candlesticks gifted by his dying mother. The bishop’s sister Person was like his mother, though she was younger. She complained that the simplicity and nobility of the bishop were being misused by the people. In her opinion, he was often cheated and taken undue advantage of. Mere Gringoire, the old woman who lived on the top of the hill and did no work made such a fool of the bishop by making him sell his silver salt cellars to pay her rent. One day, past midnight a convict enters the bishop’s house and asks for food at the point of his knife. The convict is rude, hard-hearted, rough and suspicious, and full of fear. The bishop treats him with kindness and provides him food and shelter. The convict is tempted to steal the bishop's silver candlesticks. But he gets caught and is arrested and brought before the bishop. This candlestick was very dear to the bishop as it was the parting gift presented to him by his mother. But the bishop called the convict his friend. Later he gives the candlesticks to the convict, blesses him, and tells him a secret way to Paris. The convict is deeply touched and filled with remorse. The bishop succeeds in reforming the hardened convict and tells him that the human heart is the abode of God. Bishop’s candlesticks is a very touching play. It depicts the true meaning of clergy. Unlike our present age, when one reads about the very face of the clergy, then this play may provide light to many readers.
