A drama by Brian Friel
A Seat of the Pants Production
Directed by Craig Joseph
One of Ireland’s finest playwrights, Brian Friel, creates a daring piece of theater by placing three memorable characters onstage, speaking directly to the audience, in a series of interlocking monologues that present divergent points of view on the same intriguing tale.
Molly herself — blind since she was an infant — tells of her world before and after an operation to try and restore her sight.
Her husband, itinerant champion of good causes, talks of his passion to help her. Her once-famous eye surgeon, now a whiskey-sodden recluse, sees the operation as a chance to reclaim his reputation. But nothing goes quite as any of them expected.
Lush language, insightful ideas, and moving performances fill this beautiful parable about the differences between seeing and understanding.
Molly Sweeeney is produced and presented by Seat of the Pants Productions and is presented through special arrangement with Dramatists Play Service, Inc.
*A $1.72 per-ticket fee is added to each order
