Molly Sweeney

The master of Irish theatre, Brian Friel, gives us this beautifully poignant drama centering around three subtly crafted characters who tell their carefully interwoven stories in direct address to the audience. First we have Molly, a woman blind since infancy who despite her inability to see is self-assured, confident, and at one with her world. When her enthusiastic and adventurous husband Frank sees an opportunity to have Molly's sight partially restored by Mr. Rice, a once-famous ophthalmologist, they decide to take the plunge into an unknown frontier, and in doing so change the course of all their lives forever.
