Molly Sweeney

Molly Sweeney by Brian Friel: To regain her sight, what will she have to lose?

Having lost her sight at infancy, Molly Sweeney knows the world through touch, sound, taste, and smell. Then her hopeful husband and ambitious doctor propose an operation to restore her sight, and suddenly Molly and those around her begin to understand that things may not all be as they appear. Brian Friel, Ireland’s master storyteller (Dancing at LughnasaFaith HealerTranslations) has devised a riveting contemporary drama about the unexpected consequences of a medical miracle. 

Molly Sweeney is an astonishing work…A deeply moving meditation on hope, change and despair” – New York Times
