When the young, once-dashing cripple Maurice Tabret dies mysteriously in the night, his beautiful wife Stella is accused of his murder by Nurse Wayland. Why would Stella murder the man she loves? The Sacred Flame is the story of love, devotion and family. What would you risk for love? The Sacred Flame is one of 24 plays written by Somerset Maugham, an author better known today as a novelist (The Razor's Edge, Of Human Bondage). It is unusual among his plays because it brings his literary style into the dialogue, bringing a certain formality to the language.
