The Amazing Theater Company presents: "Molly Sweeney"
Directed by Sandy Clifford.
Brian Friel, Ireland's master storyteller (Dancing at Lughnasa, Translations, Philadelphia, Here I Come) has devised a riveting contemporary drama about the terrible consequences of a medical miracle.
Molly has sat in happy, capable, independent darkness since she was ten months old. When her husband, a restless, unemployed enthusiast makes her blindness his latest cause, he consults a once famous star surgeon who, despite being half drowned in Irish whiskey agrees to attempt to restore Molly's sight.
"Brian Friel has been recognized as Ireland's greatest living playwrights; Molly Sweeney confirms that Mr. Friel still writes like a dream." - NY Times
"Dispassionate eloquence and psychological honesty: Brian Friel's writing has such vitality and warmth, such kindly accuracy of observation." - London Sunday Times
