Widely recognized as Ireland’s greatest living playwright, Friel brings his unique brand of eloquence and warmth to three characters in search of a clear vision. There’s Molly, blind since early infancy, who undergoes an operation to restore her sight. There’s Frank, her husband, a dreamer and crusader who encourages her to take the risk. And finally, there’s Dr. Rice, trying to recapture the brilliance that once made him an internationally famous surgeon. Their stories interweave, each informed by its own “blindness”, until we arrive at an unexpected and touching conclusion.
